I assume Windows since you said there wasn;t a ToolTip property.  

Drag a ToolTip onto the form.  That should add a property to all controls saying "ToolTip on toolTip1" (or whatever name you want to give the tool tip control.

Yes, it's a windows application. Sorry for not mentioning that.  So, I drag a tooltip tool over and sure enought the tooltop property shows up for the textboxes.  I only need one tooltip on a form to use for all controls on the same form?

Yes, tooltip control is just an instantiation of the class and each control inherits its own.
