Mouseover event

Hi experts...

I have a number of "Shapes" on my form in a control array (index). I would like to display a variable string as tool tip text when the mouse is placed over the shape.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks

From the help file:

Using Shape and Line Controls
Shape and line controls are useful for drawing graphical elements on the surface of a form. These controls don't support any events; they are strictly for decorative purposes.

You could use the image or picturebox controls to display your "shapes" and then have the ability to trap the mousemove event.
