How to change the ToolTip location?


I have written a Custom Control which inherits from ToolTip and it is an
OwnerDraw tooltip.

In the Popup event I calculate the size of the tooltip I need to display
(rather large tooltip) and resize it using the ToolTipSize property.

In the Draw event, I draw my tooltip.

All that works well, but when I hover over a control associated with my
tooltip, if the control is closer to the right edge of the screen than my
tooltip is wide, my tooltip gets parly displayed off the screen.

I have 2 questions:

1. isn't a tooltip normally supposed to auto-adapt its position so that it
always stays entirely visible, even if the control which displays it is
close to a screen edge?

2. is there a way I can programmaticall y change the tooltip location (after
the Popup event fired and just before its gets displayed)?

It looks like C# computes the tooltip location BEFORE I change the tooltip
size in the Popup event and does NOT adapt the tooltip location when I
change its size in the Popup event!

Thanks for help!

I have a tooltip control added to my form as well as a treeview control. By using a Microsoft KB article (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/319963) as a guide, I was able to add tooltip support for individual treeview nodes. However, I noticed that using the method shown in the KB article made the tooltip pop-up such that the cursor was in the center of the tooltip instead of the usual behavior where the tooltip's upper-left corner is placed...

I want a semantically-appropriate way of providing a tooltip or similar mechanism when a user hovers over a particular cell in a table. Specifically, I have an intranet application that enables users to find out about tooling equipment, and when they hover over the Board No cell, I want the location of that board to be displayed in a tooltip or similar. I think using an ABBR or ACRONYM tag would achieve what I want, but it's not really...

I am using .NET 2.0 forms and running on Windows XP SP2.

Even if I move off the control and back it will still not display its tooltip. If I then go to another control that has tootips, then back to the combobox, it will again display its tooltip, until the next time it is...
