ToolTips not showing

P: n/a
I have a working VB.NET program to which I added a ToolTips control and
set the main Form with some tooltip text, but the tooltip is not shown
when the Form appears.

I tried making a simple program with just a Form and tolltip control.
This works.

I went back to the first program and added a debug before the "Me.Show"
(see below). Still no tooltip.

Debug.WriteLine(ToolTip1.GetToolTip(Me))
Me.Show()

Any ideas how to debug this further?

Thanks
Tom

Do something similar to this for your tooltip(s) to show. I the case of this example, I have a ComboBox on my form and I want
it to show a Tooltip message when the mouse pointer is over a ComboBox. So, I put the Tooltip code in the ComboBox's MouseEnter
event.
Hope this helps.'

Private Sub ComboBox1_MouseEnter(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ComboBox1.MouseEnter

ToolTip1.SetToolTip(ComboBox1, "Click Down ARROW on Right to Select Client Name")

End Sub
