Hi,

I want to popup a panel on the mousehover event of a listbox on a winform. The panel should appear where the mouse is, and it should contain as many lines as items in the listbox control.

I am also open to a tooltip implementation as well, but the tooltip may be a little too cutesy for my requirement. Besides, tooltip is not multilined, right?

Well any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks! =]

This is a differnt kind of tooltip may be of some help in making a custom tooltip shape

and for multiline I think the method shown in Mikal613 first link should work that is
Me.ToolTipProviderCtl.SetToolTip(Me.Button1, "this is" & environment.NewLine & _
    "a multiline" & environment.NewLine & "tooltip!")

Thanks guys. The answers are good quality.

I had a listbox that might display more items than it can visibly display when initialized to its default height. This is why I wanted to use a tooltip.

In the end, I ended up dynamically resizing the listbox based on the number of items it contains. It is a more elegant approach in this particular scenario, but if I ever need specialized tooltips, I know where to go.

Thanks.
