Adding ToolTips to Windows Controls

This has been excerpted from book "The Complete Visual C# Programmer's Guide from the Authors of C# Corner".

Adding a ToolTip to a control is a simple matter of implementing the functionality provided by the ToolTip class. There are two steps to add a ToolTip to a control: first, create an instance of the ToolTip control; second, attach a control to the ToolTip object by calling the ToolTip.SetToolTip method. To activate the ToolTip, set the Active property to true. The following code adds a ToolTip to a button control:

        ToolTip toolTip1 = new System.Windows.Forms.ToolTip();
        toolTip1.SetToolTip (button1, "This is tooltip test");
        toolTip1.Active = true;
