ToolTip and ErrorProvider behavior

I have the following issues:

1. I want to make it so that ToolTips never go away once they are shown
until the user moves the mouse outside of the control for which the ToolTip
is assigned. It seems to me that setting the ToolTip.AutoPopDelay to a large
value (e.g., Int32.MaxValue) should acomplish this goal, but it does not.

2. I want to make it so that the ErrorProvider message is always displayed
when the mouse is over the ErrorProvider icon (i.e., I don't want the
ErrorProvider message to go away after a few seconds). Is this possible?

3. I've noticed that the ErrorProvider message fails to reappear if you keep
the mouse over an ErrorProvider icon until the message goes away and then
move your mouse off of the icon and then back on to the icon. Is there any
way to make it so that the ErrorProvider message always appears when the
mouse moves over the icon?

There is a known issue with the AutoPopDelay property of ToolTips
So far the maxvalue we can set for AutoPopDelay is any value less than or
equal to 32767. Once the value has beyond 32767, it will be reset to
default value 5000.

So I think for the ToolTips question we can try to set the AutoPopDelay to

As for ErrorProvider question, it has less customized feature than
ToolTips e.g. there is no exposed method which allowed us to set the
AutoPopDelay similar with ToolTips, it is hard to do that.

If you really want to do that, I think we have to wrtie a new our own
"ErrorProvider ".
Simply we can put a picturebox align to the control and set the ToolTip to
the picturebox, so that we can get the tooltip's feature.

Hope this helps.
