Am using windows forms in vb.net.
Any snippets or suggestion will be appreciated.

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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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....
