ToolTip Constructor

.NET Framework 1.1

Initializes a new instance of the ToolTip class.

Overload List

Initializes a new instance of the ToolTip without a specified container.

[Visual Basic] Public Sub New()
[C#] public ToolTip();
[C++] public: ToolTip();
[JScript] public function ToolTip();

Initializes a new instance of the ToolTip class with a specified container.

[Visual Basic] Public Sub New(IContainer)
[C#] public ToolTip(IContainer);
[C++] public: ToolTip(IContainer*);
[JScript] public function ToolTip(IContainer);

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example creates an instance of the ToolTip class and associates it with the Form the instance is created within. The code then initializes the delay properties AutoPopDelay, InitialDelay, and ReshowDelay. In addition the instance of the ToolTip class sets the ShowAlways property to true to enable ToolTip text to be displayed regardless of whether the form is active. Finally, the example associates ToolTip text with two controls on a form, a Button and a CheckBox. This example assumes that the method defined in the example is located within a Form that contains a Button control named button1 and a CheckBox control named checkBox1 and that the method is called from the constructor of the Form.

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] Note   This example shows how to use one of the overloaded versions of the ToolTip constructor. For other examples that might be available, see the individual overload topics.
[Visual Basic] 
' This example assumes that the Form_Load event handling method
' is connected to the Load event of the form.
Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
   ' Create the ToolTip and associate with the Form container.
   Dim toolTip1 As New ToolTip()
   
   ' Set up the delays for the ToolTip.
   toolTip1.AutoPopDelay = 5000
   toolTip1.InitialDelay = 1000
   toolTip1.ReshowDelay = 500
   ' Force the ToolTip text to be displayed whether or not the form is active.
   toolTip1.ShowAlways = True
   
   ' Set up the ToolTip text for the Button and Checkbox.
   toolTip1.SetToolTip(Me.button1, "My button1")
   toolTip1.SetToolTip(Me.checkBox1, "My checkBox1")
End Sub

[C#] 
// This example assumes that the Form_Load event handling method
// is connected to the Load event of the form.
private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
   // Create the ToolTip and associate with the Form container.
   ToolTip toolTip1 = new ToolTip();

   // Set up the delays for the ToolTip.
   toolTip1.AutoPopDelay = 5000;
   toolTip1.InitialDelay = 1000;
   toolTip1.ReshowDelay = 500;
   // Force the ToolTip text to be displayed whether or not the form is active.
   toolTip1.ShowAlways = true;
      
   // Set up the ToolTip text for the Button and Checkbox.
   toolTip1.SetToolTip(this.button1, "My button1");
   toolTip1.SetToolTip(this.checkBox1, "My checkBox1");
}

[C++] 
// This example assumes that the Form_Load event handling method
// is connected to the Load event of the form.
private:
void Form1_Load(Object* /*sender*/, System::EventArgs* /*e*/)
{
   // Create the ToolTip and associate with the Form container.
   ToolTip* toolTip1 = new ToolTip();

   // Set up the delays for the ToolTip.
   toolTip1->AutoPopDelay = 5000;
   toolTip1->InitialDelay = 1000;
   toolTip1->ReshowDelay = 500;
   // Force the ToolTip text to be displayed whether or not the form is active.
   toolTip1->ShowAlways = true;
      
   // Set up the ToolTip text for the Button and Checkbox.
   toolTip1->SetToolTip(this->button1, S"My button1");
   toolTip1->SetToolTip(this->checkBox1, S"My checkBox1");
}
