Hi,

I found a work around, but it would sure be nice if it worked simply by entering the tool tip text. Considering these controsl were fairlr expensive. Anyways, here is the work around.

Add a tool tip component to your form.

Then on the MouseEnter function for a menu option, set the tool tip value for the toolbar or menubar or whatever the parent item of the menu option is.

Eg:
toolTip1.SetToolTip(toolBarWorkOrderDetails,”Adds a new Work Order Detail record”);

Then on the MouseLeave function, you need to remove that tool tip

Eg.
toolTip1.SetToolTip(toolBarWorkOrderDetails,””);

This seems to work very nicely, it just seems like more work then one should have to do.
