I would like to know how to use the drawString on a mouseEnter Event of, as an example, a button.  I know I have to use the Paint Event but I don't really know what parameters I have to use with the Paint Event (Object sender, PaintEventArgs e).

I'm not sure if I follow you, but if I do - this is what I did:


    bool mouseIsOver = false;
    private void button1_Paint(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs e)
        e.Graphics.DrawString("Test", new System.Drawing.Font("Times New Roman", 10), System.Drawing.Brushes.Black, 5, 5);

    private void button1_MouseEnter(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
      this.mouseIsOver = true;

    private void button1_MouseLeave(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
      this.mouseIsOver = false;
