NotifyIcon MouseOver?

P: n/a
There doesn't seem to be a mouseover event for the notifyicon, but I
want to fire an event that shows the user an updated status message on
mouseover...sort of like hovering over the network icon shows bytes
sent & received. Anyone know how to pull this off?

Thanks!

It's as simple as changing the text on the NotifyIcon since it's just a
tooltip. Just update it to whatever you need.

Put this in a timer event to see for yourself.

NotifyIcon.Text = Now.TimeOfDay.ToString

But what I'm getting at is I need to know when the user hovers over
the icon so I can have the program query a database for the current
status instead of doing it on a timed interval. Possible?
