Control Tip in C#

I am writing an application in c# windows forms. I want to
show some text when the cursor holds over a button for a
while. In VB6/VBA I used the ControlTip Text property of
the control. Is there an equivalent in c#. If not how can
I code it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Drag a tooltip control onto your form. Once it's there, then you will see
the ToolTip property available in your property grid.

HTH,
