ErrorProvider in .Net 2003

How do I capture the hover event on the ErrorProvider control?

I created a custom control and inherited the ErrorProvider. Problem is
I don't know which method to override to capture the hover event. I
want to popup a custom form instead of the default tooltip.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Christian

Hello Freeon,

Take a look at the ErrorProvider in both the help docs and the object browser,
then come back and ask an intelligent question.

GhostInAK, that is extremely poor form.

My question very obviously states I can not find where the event
capture point is, that includes the documentation in both of those
sources.

In the future when your have nothing to contribute please do not post
nonsense.

------------------------
Now for those without the flamethrower on extra crispy... There does
not appear to be any events triggered that we can override to customize
the ErrorProvider message.

Best bet is to write your own Component that emulates the ErrorProvider.

Hello Freeon,

Poor form my ass. Poor form is asking an assinine question and then trying
to make out like you didn't.

Your original post states:

Well.. if you had bothered to read the docs or look in the object browser,
you would have noticed that there is NO hover event or overridable method
that will allow you to do this. So I stand by my original prescription:
Read, then ask intelligent questions.

GhostInAK, Since your unclear about my question and want to fight about
it, I'll give you the high-level objective I'm trying to solve. I'm
sure you'll be able to understand this one.

How can I make the ErrorProvider ToolTip stay up indefinitely? Also
how can I enhance the ToolTip add an expandable section for more
information?

Now Ghost don't stray from your anal standard of exact explanation.
Show me some code.
