Property Value

A boolean value.




FollowPointer is a boolean flag to define whether the tooltip should follow the mouse pointer while it is moving over the control for which the tooltip is shown (True), or if it stays motionless at the position where it pop's up (False).

To make use of the dynamic capabilities of the tooltip-components, like changing tooltip-content while the pointer is moving (see "Task-based tutorials"), FollowPointer should be turned on (True).

This property is only available at component-level. The assigned value applies to the tooltips of all controls on the same form:

'Make the tooltips follow the mouse pointer...

Me.MultiLine.GetMultiLineToolTip(Panel1).FollowPointer = True
