In my ASP.Net application I am setting tooltips on
individual cells of datagrid.  One of the tooltips is
quite large and I'd like to give the user more time to read it
before it disappears.

Is it possible to increase the length of time my tooltips are
visible over individual cells of a datagrid?

Thanks in advance.

AerosSaga, thanks for your suggestions.  However, the articles
above are referencing VB.Net applications instead of ASP.Net
applications.  Tooltip is available in the .Net Framework Components
list only as a System.Windows.Forms control.

Any ideas for ASP.Net?  Thanks!

I don't think any brebuilt ASP.NET properties exist in the CLR for anything other than tooltip text.  You can probably impliment some kind of custom java solution.

I think ASP.net does not have any feature to increase the display time of tool tip. You could do this by java script/html  div or layers.  

Display small layer on mouse over event and hide it after specified time
