Showing the Tool Tip description for Toolbar panel in the status bar panel.

P: n/a
Hi Everyone,

Is there any one out there who can help me in VB.NET to
show the tooltip description of the TOOLBAR panel in the
STATUSBAR. In other words when the mouse hovers over the
tool bars the tooltip shows tip under the mouse and the
detail description of the TOOL BAR should be shown in the
STATUS BAR panel in the right hand side corner at the
bottom of the form.

Thanks in advance.

Suresh,
In the MouseMove event of the Toolbar check each ToolbarButton's Rectangle
property to see if it contains the mouse's location. If it does update the
StatusBar, if non of the buttons do clear the StatusBar.

I have a sample that I need to verify is clean enough to post on Got Dot
Net...

Hope this helps
Jay

Jay,

I don't seem to be getting the syntax correct to check
the rectangle box. The stsus bar is not showing the text
correctly.

Please help, if you have a sample code.
