Tooltip display for the combobox dropdown list portion

I need tooltip to be displayed for the combobox dropdown list portion,
when the mouse hovers it.
Am using windows forms in vb.net.
Any snippets or suggestion will be appreciated.

Regards

Add a hidden label for your tooltip and use the _MouseHover event to display it (and the _MouseLeave event to hide it again when the user stops hovering)

Hi,
Drag a ToolTip control to the MainForm and add this code in the MainForm_Load Event.

Private Sub MainForm_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
      ToolTip1.SetToolTip(ComboBox1, "Surprise")
End Sub

Hey Gerente and other friends
I need the tooltip to be displayed for the mouse hover of the list portion that is displayed,
When the combo dropsdown, not just for the combobox.
Thanx for the attempt....
