I have a windows form application in .net 1.1, using visual studio 2003.

The tooltip works fine but it is too small. How can I make it bigger?

Thanks

Hi,
You have to use windows API functions for changing the size of the tool tip.
Use DLLImport attribute or PInvoke Concept.
Plz refer.

Thanks Pradeep.

I was hoping you would give me an easier answer. I'm not familiar with windows API. could you explain a little bit on that and give me a link to a tutorial. Thanks.
