Tip of the day / in-app help component?

P: n/a
Many times there are controls that need to be explained in some of my
software dynamically (IE, not require the user to open the help file).
I'd like to use "tip of the day" style windows for that and wonder if
there are any components out there that might make context sensitive
help a bit easier than having to roll my own.

Thanks!

Hi Mitchell,
Welcome to MSDN Newsgroup!

Based on my knowledge, you also can use Tooltip Control to achieve the
goal. We can show the information to user by means of this control's
prompt. If you want to get more information about this control, please
refer to this following article:

Thanks and have a nice day!
