ToolTip Constructor

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

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

public ToolTip()

This constructor creates an instance of a ToolTip not associated with any container.

The following code example creates an instance of the ToolTip class. 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. The code example requires 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.

      // 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");
