Hint Property

Contains the text string that can appear when the user moves the mouse over the control.


Use the Hint property to provide a string of help text either as a Help Hint, or as help text on a particular location such as a status bar.

A Help Hint is a box containing help text that appears for a control when the user moves the mouse pointer over the control and pauses momentarily. To set up Help Hints:

- Specify the Hint property of each control for which a Help Hint should appear

- Set the ShowHint property of each appropriate control to true and set the ShowHint property of the form to true.

Note: If the application's ShowHint property is false, the Help Hint does not appear.
