I'm using the DataGridView.  I want be hover over any cell in a row and display a tooltip.  The data in the tooltip is specific to the row, not the row.  How can I do this?

I can probably help you with this but I'm very confused about something in your original question (probably a typo) but I can't figure out what you mean when you wrote
The data in the tooltip is specific to the row, not the row.
Obviously that's a contradictory statement. Can you please clarify what you mean?

Sorry.  That's supposed to be:  tooltip is specific to the row, not the cell.

Gotcha!
All you would need to do is add an event handler to the CellToolTipTextNeeded method of the DataGridView control. Then just set the ToolTipText property as needed. Here's a super simple example:
Private Sub dataGridViewUpwardDependencies_CellToolTipTextNeeded(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellToolTipTextNeededEventArgs)
	e.ToolTipText = "This is row " + e.RowIndex.ToString()
End Sub

Open in new window
