The following example shows how to set the CustomPopupPlacementCallback property and create the corresponding delegate. The same technique is used to by the Popup, which is demonstrated in the Popup Placement Sample.

aToolTip.Placement = PlacementMode.Custom;
aToolTip.CustomPopupPlacementCallback =
    new CustomPopupPlacementCallback(placeToolTip);
public CustomPopupPlacement[] placeToolTip(Size popupSize,
                                        Size targetSize,
                                        Point offset)
{
    CustomPopupPlacement placement1 =
       new CustomPopupPlacement(new Point(-50, 100), PopupPrimaryAxis.Vertical);

    CustomPopupPlacement placement2 =
        new CustomPopupPlacement(new Point(10, 20), PopupPrimaryAxis.Horizontal);

    CustomPopupPlacement[] ttplaces =
            new CustomPopupPlacement[] { placement1, placement2 };
    return ttplaces;
}
