How to make a note show when the mouse hovers

I want to make a small window popup when the mouse hovers.
I've looked in the Help but can't find any info (probably can't think of a
good keyword)

Are ToolTips control used for that?

Any suggestions?
Thanks

Drag a tooltip component from the Windows Forms tab of the toolbox onto your
form. All controls will be extended by a property that can be used to
assign the tooltip text.

Just me,

Almost the same answer as Herfried gave however in my opinion can his answer
be confusing when you never used that.

Drag a tooltip component from the Windows Forms tab of the toolbox onto your
form.

All controls will in the property grid for that than get an extra property
where the tooltip text can be placed.

Sounds perfect if I can assign the property at runtime.
thanks

Work great

I love this system. It's unbelievable how much capability one can get with a
few lines of code - and someone to point you in the right direction.

Thanks Henfried and Cor
