Show help for the selected menu item in StatusStrip

There MUST be a simple solution for this!
Every windows application shows some extra information in the status bar for
the selected menu entry when the user browses around the application menu.

What's the standard way to do that in a Windows Forms 2.0+ application?

I'm using a MenuStrip and a StatusStrip. It can't be right that I have to
hook to mouse events on each and every entry in the menu...

I haven't had any luck finding the solution in any of my books or by
Googling around.

Any help appreciated.
Cheers, Jan.
