Creating pop up windows in Visual C++.NET

How do I create the little informational pop-up windows when you mouse over fields on a .NET Form? I don't want a standard dialog box with borders and a title bar. I want these windows to show up when you mouse over an item and then go away when the mouse leaves. I'm programming in Visual C++.NET. Please provide specific coding examples.

Add a ToolTip control to your form and associate it with the control you want it to provide a tip on.

   this->toolTip1 = (gcnew System::Windows::Forms::ToolTip(this->components));
   this->toolTip1->SetToolTip(this->textBox1, "this is a tooltip");
