public Size ToolTipSize { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Size

The Size of the ToolTip window.

The ToolTipSize property enables the Popup event handler to change the size of the ToolTip window. ToolTipSize is often used in conjunction with the members of the DrawToolTipEventArgs class to customize the appearance of ToolTips.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the ToolTip.Popup event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type ToolTip named ToolTip1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the ToolTip.Popup event.

private void ToolTip1_Popup(Object sender, PopupEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "AssociatedWindow", e.AssociatedWindow );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "AssociatedControl", e.AssociatedControl );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "IsBalloon", e.IsBalloon );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ToolTipSize", e.ToolTipSize );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Cancel", e.Cancel );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "Popup Event" );
}
