In a DataGridView I defined tooltips for the cells in the CellFormatting event. Some of the tooltip texts contain more than only a few words. To make it easier to read the text I would like to increase the time a tooltip is shown.

Is there a chance to set the parameters of the DataGridView tooltip, ... such as the properties "AutoPopDelay" and "AutomaticDelay" of a Tooltip control?
