Anybody know how to expose the (TTT) property of a usercontrol?  No matter whether the control is a simple command button, or an amalgamation of several
controls, I can *never* get the (TTT) to work properly.  It appears in the property list, and retains its value, but it only appears when I hover over part of the UC not covered by a constitutent control -- what do I need to do ?

' you must also set ToolTipText prop of your controls you placed on your usercontrol
Public Property Let tt(ByVal New_Val As String)
    Label1.ToolTipText = New_Val
    Text1.ToolTipText = New_Val
    PropertyChanged "tt"
End Property

Private Sub UserControl_WriteProperties(PropBag As PropertyBag)
    Call PropBag.WriteProperty("tt", Label1.ToolTipText, "")
..
End Sub

Private Sub UserControl_ReadProperties(PropBag As PropertyBag)
    Dim tmp As String
    tmp = PropBag.ReadProperty("tt", "")
    Label1.ToolTipText = tmp
    Text1.ToolTipText = tmp
..
End Sub
