Sets the ToolTip text associated with the specified control, and then displays the ToolTip modally at the specified relative position.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public void Show (
	string text,
	IWin32Window window,
	int x,
	int y
)
public void Show (
	String text, 
	IWin32Window window, 
	int x, 
	int y
)
public function Show (
	text : String, 
	window : IWin32Window, 
	x : int, 
	y : int
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

text

A String containing the new ToolTip text.

window

The Control to display the ToolTip for.

x

The horizontal offset, in pixels, relative to the upper-left corner of the associated control window, to display the ToolTip.

y

The vertical offset, in pixels, relative to the upper-left corner of the associated control window, to display the ToolTip.

This version of the overloaded Show method operates identically to the Show(String,IWin32Window,Point) version, except that the offset is specified as separate x- and y-coordinates instead of a Point.

Applications running in partial trust must assert the AllWindows permission to use this method, as Show can control the display and location of a ToolTip independent of user action.
