Tooltip like thing for my control


Many commercial quality UI controls have some information popup. For
example, Microsoft Word 2007's ribbon has some tooltip-like things
that contain formatted texts (bold), icons. the ComboBox can drop down
the list outside the control or even the hosting form. All these
cannot be possible by drawing on the control window, I think. How can
I achieve these in C#? Shall I use a borderless form? But won't it be
too sluggish? Those things I mentioned earlier seemed to be very light-
weighted, and popped up immediately. I know, by experience,that
showing a .NET form is quite slow. What would be the recommened way?
