What did you try to show a tooltip?
--SA

in Form_load put

toolTip1.SetToolTip(this.label1, "Display Date");

You answered faster than me. Have a 5 ;)

This is a correct way. Not in Form_load (I tired to explain: there is no such event; and the Load event itself it a kind of "fake"), but anywhere. My 5 anyway.

Instead of setting the ToolTipText property for your control, use this code:
C#
yourToolTipControl.SetToolTip(this.yourControl, "Your text");


The text will be displayed for yourControl. You can call SetToolTip as many times as you want on all your controls.

This is correct, my 5. Good that you did not mention that ridiculous "Form_load" (see my other comment).
