vb.net prevent tool tip from closing too early

One of my tool tips is rather long and it doesn't stay open long enough for me to read it. I heard that by setting the property AutoCloseDelay="0" the tool tip would only close on mouse out, but it's not working. Could someone tell me if I am using this property correctly. Or maybe it i the incorrect property?

Thanks

                    <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlMenuList1" runat="server"
                        DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2" DataTextField="menuname"
                        DataValueField="autono"
                        ToolTip="If needed choose the parent menu item. The new class will be placed under this item in the menu. If this is a main level class make sure the box above is unchecked and don't worry about this menu." AutoCloseDelay="0" >
                    </asp:DropDownList>

Sorry buddy, that is controlled by OS/client Browser, you can control it, but you can create your own implementation to display tooltips by using JavaScript with div elements. I'm from my phone browser right now so is hard to me give you more info.
