You can do this.... In the Click Event of the flexgrid:

Private Sub MSFlexGrid1_Click()
    With MSFlexGrid1
        .ToolTipText = "This is row " + CStr(.Row) + " Col " + CStr(.Col)
    End With
End Sub

Thanx for responding.. but that's not quite what I wanted..

I wanted when a the tip to appear when the mouse passes over the cell (as with other tooltips..)

Well, I think the only other way would be to create a window hook, but that is going to be *alot* of work...

See the following MS article:

HOWTO: Hook Into a Window's Messages Using AddressOf 

Hope this helps!
