Hi All,

Is it possible to have a balloon tooltip in the datagridview? Example: if i hover the mouse in a cell the balloon tooltip will show. Thank you!

And what, reading a bit of MSDN help was not a chance? :-)

i tried it, here is the code i used.

Dim commentToolTip As New ToolTip()
commentToolTip.ToolTipTitle = "Comment"
commentToolTip.UseFading = True
commentToolTip.UseAnimation = True
commentToolTip.IsBalloon = True
commentToolTip.ShowAlways = True
commentToolTip.AutoPopDelay = 5000
commentToolTip.InitialDelay = 1000
commentToolTip.ReshowDelay = 500
commentToolTip.SetToolTip(dgvProduction(GetX, GetY), GetComment)

GetX and GetY are sub to get the datagrid cell address.
The GetComment is a function to get the comment/text in the database.

Now, i'm getting an error in the SetToolTip part. It's says about casting the datagridview into forms.control. I don't know how to fixed it and i can't also find a way to fixed it.

Yes. What's wrong about System.Windows.Forms.ToolTip? It will do all you need in this case. Please see:[^].
