How do I display baloontip over a toolbar only when the mouse has stopped over the toolbar button?

I'm using the Sedna toolbar, and what I need is a description of each button. Now I know I can use the ToolTips property, but my bosses would like a little more design and flash, so I'm using the ctl32_baloontip class for it. Everything seems to work great except I only want the message to appear when the mouse stops moving and is over the button.

For example, if I move the mouse continuously over the toolbar to the menu above it, a description for the toolbar button appears, even though I'm at the menu.

My question is:

Is there a way to trigger the message display only when the user has stopped the mouse over the toolbar button?

Thanks for any help.

I just Googled Sedna. I'm very confused. What does it stand for? What is it?

Sedna was the Microsft code name for Visual FoxPro 10. After Microsoft's decission, it was reduced to a free add-on to VFP. when it was finished

Sedna was never VFP10.  Sedna was the code-name for the add-on that exposed .Net functions to the VFP9 world.

Thanks. More Googling, guessing and drilling down led to:


where it says "This download contains six components: VistaDialogs4COM, Upsizing Wizard, Data Explorer, NET4COM, MY for VFP and VS 2005 Extension for VFP."

I see no mention of a toolbar there. Am I missing something?
