Hi experts

I am developing a Windows application in C# using VS2008.

In my application, there is a top and a bottom panel. There are many tabs at the top panel, and each tab contains many controls such as text box, combo box, datagridview, etc.

What I would like to do is to provide user with contextual help so that when user clicks or hovers any of the controls at the top panel, a Help text will be displayed at the bottom panel.

I am about to read the book "Pro .NET 2.0 Windows" but this book was already 6 yrs old, and is for .NET 2.0. I searched Expert-Exchange database, and I found the following link but it is for VB.
https://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/.NET/Q_26194451.html

Could someone please point to me the right direction as I am doing it in C# and VS2008 (.NET 3.5). Thanks in advance.
