Hi

I need to simulate what happens in Excel when you move your mouse over an icon.
A message pops up showing a description which dissapears when you move away.
How would I do this on a Windows form when I move my mouse over a labek, panel
or other control?

Thanks

This is the Tooltip option which was part of each control in older versions of VB.      In newer versions you must drag the Tooltip component from the toolbox on to your form.   The Tooltip property will then apppear in each controls property.   Set the tooltip text etc and it will appear when you run the form.   You can also get at it by code
