Need to make the text in a DataGridView cell visible

Scrollbars for the DataGridView is set to "Both", yet when a text value is truncated by the size of the control, a horizontal scroll bar does not appear. Any idea why not?

Also, I would like to add a Tool Tip, so hovering the mouse over that cell will display the entire text field.

Please let me know if this is possible.

I have done this with Ingragistics conrols but do not know if both the Tool Tip an the hovering are possible with straight WinForms.

So that means I do NOT need to worry about catching the MouseOver event?
that is correct, you do not need to catch the mouseOver event. The tool tip control already handles it. :)
