Gets or sets the automatic delay for the ToolTip.

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

public int AutomaticDelay { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The automatic delay, in milliseconds. The default is 500.

The AutomaticDelay property enables you to set a single delay value, which is then used to set the values of the AutoPopDelay, InitialDelay, and ReshowDelay properties. Each time the AutomaticDelay property is set, the following values are set by default.

Property

Default Value

AutoPopDelay

10 times the AutomaticDelay property value.

InitialDelay

Equal to the AutomaticDelay property value.

ReshowDelay

1/5 of the AutomaticDelay property value.

These properties can also be set independently once the AutomaticDelay property has been set. For more information, see the AutoPopDelay, InitialDelay, and ReshowDelay properties. This property is typically used to provide a consistent delay pattern for your ToolTip windows.
