I need a COM component for creating beautiful tool tip text.

 Hi experts!

I still use VB6 with many external COM components. I have good solution for almost any task with an exception. Please advise me which component to use for beautiful tool tip text ? It should be with nice look (in blue interface like Office 2003 will be best) and also should be able to show big text (255 symbols, in 2 or 3 rows, not in one.)

It can be free or commercial version, no matter , please give me the name to check

Aren't all VB6 controls look a little old?

Since you have all the code, you can modify it to fit your needs.

Well, if you look over my application - you should be expert to notice that it is not written on NET. I have docable windows, gradient over Windows form and nice new buttons with 48x48 pixcel icon.

Well, as I say, if I do not find better I'll accept your answer.
