Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Font

A Font object.

Use the Font property when you are custom drawing a ToolTip that should use the Windows default font.

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 on what button the ToolTip is being displayed for as indicated by the DrawToolTipEventArgs.AssociatedControl property.

The code excerpt below demonstrates using the DrawBorder, DrawBackground, and DrawText methods. See the DrawToolTipEventArgs class overview for the complete code example.

// Draw the ToolTip using default values if the ToolTip is for button3.
else if (e.AssociatedControl == button3)
