Problem is that the tooltip goes away after like 9 seconds.  Is there a way to increase this time limit on a tooltip.  I have rather large notes fields that they don't want to show everything so I truncate it and show a tooltip.  But I have not found a way to increase the viewing time of a tooltip.  This is in aasp.net 1.1.

<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="Notes">
											<a title='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "strNotes").ToString() %>'>
												<%# Truncate(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "strNotes").ToString(),10) %>

Public Function Truncate(ByVal input As String, ByVal characterLimit As Integer) As String
        Dim output As String = input

        ' Check if the string is longer than the allowed amount 
        ' otherwise do nothing 
        If output.Length > characterLimit AndAlso characterLimit > 0 Then

            ' cut the string down to the maximum number of characters 
            output = output.Substring(0, characterLimit)

            ' Check if the character right after the truncate point was a space 
            ' if not, we are in the middle of a word and need to remove the rest of it 
            If input.Substring(output.Length, 1) <> " " Then
                Dim LastSpace As Integer = output.LastIndexOf(" ")

                ' if we found a space then, cut back to that space 
                If LastSpace <> -1 Then
                    output = output.Substring(0, LastSpace)
                End If
            End If
            ' Finally, add the "..." 
            output += "..."
        End If
        Return output
    End Function
