I am trying to use the tooltiptext feature in vb but I need to insert a carriage return to make the text multi-line. When I use vbCr or char(13) it just prints a null character and there is no carriage return. Is there some sort of setting or some function I need to use???

Hi
Take a look at my dll on http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.Asp?ID=1232

With this dll you can make not only multiline tips, but also customize the tooltip by setting its background and foreground colors, the delay time and visible time, whether or not the tooltip is centered, and whether or not it appears as a balloon.
You can also set tooltips not only on controls, but to "control's items" like listbox, listview, treeview or toolbar items.

Cheers

Hi!

Do this (If it's label1):

Label1.ToolTipText = "This is a Test" & vbCrlf & "A very nice test..." & vbcrlf & vbcrlf & "Check it out"

That's it!

VB itself doesn't allow multiline tooltips. Period

Hi,

IF you are very much interested to give Multiline Tooltip, this can be achived by using multiline text box with same background color. This text be moved according to the mouse movement using the event "MouseMove"
