DrawToolTipEventHandler Delegate

Represents the method that will handle the Draw event of a ToolTip.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

type DrawToolTipEventHandler = 
    delegate of  
        sender:Object * 
        e:DrawToolTipEventArgs -> unit

Parameters

sender
Type: System.Object

The source of the event.

e
Type: System.Windows.Forms.DrawToolTipEventArgs

A DrawToolTipEventArgs that contains the event data.

The ToolTip.Draw event is raised by the ToolTip class when the ToolTip is drawn and the ToolTip.OwnerDraw property value is true. The DrawToolTipEventArgs class contains all the information needed to paint the ToolTip, including the ToolTip text, the Rectangle, and the Graphics object on which the drawing should be done. To customize the look of the ToolTip, use the Rectangle to determine the bounds of the ToolTip, and the Graphics object to perform your customized drawing. You can increase the bounds of the ToolTip before it is shown by handling the Popup event.

When you create a DrawToolTipEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event handler delegates, see Handling and Raising Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to custom draw the ToolTip. The example creates a ToolTip and associates it to three Button controls located on the Form. The example sets the OwnerDraw property to true and handles the Draw event. In the Draw event handler, the ToolTip is custom drawn differently depending upon what button the ToolTip is being displayed for as indicated by the DrawToolTipEventArgs.AssociatedControl property.
