HI all,

I haven't been able to work out how to create a hover over tooltip for an image in form.  I

I've added the picturebox from there couldn't find how to add the tooltip - it'll be static.

I also played around with Tooltip couldn't get it to display.

    That's right...the ToolTip control is the way to go.  First you add the ToolTip control to the Form  Then each control will have an additional property called "ToolTip on toolTip1" in its Properties listing.  Set that to the static text you want to appear when the mouse hovers over that control.

    How do you associate the ToolTip for an icon instead of a control on form?
