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.

Thanks

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:
