Neither of these are easy to solve.  Neither the standard listbox nor the standard tooltip allow this to happen.

As for a multi-line list box, you are going to have to probably make your own.  You can make controls with a method such as:

Again however, this is not easy at all.  Any chance you can find another solution to the problem?

wow, harder than I thought.

you just convinced me that it does not worth my time to make such things happen, since this program is not aimed to be of any major use.

but if no one else post any comments in the next few days I'll accept your answer

Sorry about the complications with such a project, it's just that such a project is a project in itself.
