Multiline tooltips are not supported.

You can use a third party solution like:

Or you can make your own tooltip with a custom form

Better try like this.
I have used one label control. set its visible property to false.


lbltooltip.BackColor = Me.BackColor
lbltooltip.Left = X
lbltooltip.Top = Y
lbltooltip.Visible = True
lbltooltip.Caption = "This is a very big tooltip. very very big.very very big.very very big.very very big.very very big.very very big.very very big.very very big.very very big.very very big.very very big."
lbltooltip.Width = Image1.Width
lbltooltip.Height = Image1.Height / 2
