Private Sub List1_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, _
X As Single, Y As Single)
    '
    ' present related tip message
    '
    Dim lXPoint As Long
    Dim lYPoint As Long
    Dim lIndex As Long
    '
    If Button = 0 Then
        lXPoint = CLng(X / Screen.TwipsPerPixelX)
        lYPoint = CLng(Y / Screen.TwipsPerPixelY)
        With List1
           
            lIndex = SendMessage(.hwnd, LB_ITEMFROMPOINT, 0, _
            ByVal ((lYPoint * 65536) + lXPoint))
           
            If (lIndex >= 0) And (lIndex <= .ListCount) Then
                .ToolTipText = .List(lIndex)
            Else
                .ToolTipText = ""
            End If
