vs2008 how to copy text from intellisense error message

Is it possible to copy the information shown in the popup error message in  vs2008 ?
for example I hover over a peice of c# code (wavy underline) copied from a previous system and the message pops up that the method is obsolete. can I copy this message instead of having to rekey the message to google information. I have tried ctrl+C but just get the code under the cursor.

I don't think there is a way to copy the message.  I have had a quick look in google, went through my Visual Studio settings, but can't see anything.  I did see a few things but they were for other languages which actually contain that functionality.

If it helps it is basically like a toolTip; if you can figure out how to copy a toolTips text then it should be possible with intellisense.
