I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

yes, if you provide the text for the tooltip dynamically you could show any text you like. see the following sample code

Private cellColumnIndex As Integer = -1, cellRowIndex As Integer = -1
Private Sub testDataGridView_CellMouseMove(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DataGridViewCellMouseEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.CellMouseMove
    If e.ColumnIndex <> Me.cellColumnIndex OrElse e.RowIndex <> Me.cellRowIndex Then
        Me.cellColumnIndex = e.ColumnIndex
        Me.cellRowIndex = e.RowIndex
        If Me.cellColumnIndex >= 0 AndAlso Me.cellRowIndex >= 0 Then
            Me.ToolTip2.SetToolTip(Me.DataGridView1, ConnectedUsers(Me.DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells("Database").Value, Instance))
        End If
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window

here the SetToolTip could be used to determine which text to display.
