ErrorProvider message does not show up

I am using C# .Net 1.1 Windows forms. I have an error provider. I set the error (SetError) as per my validations. I can see the errors whenever I move mouse pointer over the blinking icon. But if I leave the mouse pointer on it, the error message goes off after some time and I can never see it again. Even if I take the mouse pointer off of it and then go back on it again, nothing shows up.

How can I make the message appear whenever I move the mouse over the icon, no matter how long I leave it there.

Unfortunately no, but you can create your own ErrorProvider by extending IExtenderProvider. An excelent article on the subject, written by an excelent guy (Dino Esposito) is here:
