Using the MouseHover Event?

I have a Windows Form that have a lot of Buttons on it. I want to be able to change the default color to another color when the Mouse hovers over a button and then have the default color restored when the Mouse isn't over the button. I can do it when the Mouse is hovering over a button but not sure how to handle it when it's NOT over a button. Are there events for when the Mouse isn't hovering or do I need to create custom code?

Thanks!

MouseHover is not a good choice for what you do, because it triggers continuously while the cursor is over the control.

Instead, change the BackColor on MouseEnter, and reset it to its original value on MouseLeave.

James,

What I'm wanting to do is give the user a visual representation of when a certain button is enabled. So, I'm thinking that when a button IS enabled and the mouse hovers over it....it will change to the specified color. Doesn't the MouseEnter Event fire when the button is clicked on or the button has focus and the Enter key is pressed?

No, the MouseEnter event triggers when the cursors enters the surface of the button.

Then there are MouseHover events at regular intervals as long as the cursors stays over the button.

Finally there is a MouseLeave when the cursor leaves the surface of the button and goes on the form or another control.

No need to click.
