The style of regular tooltips is automatically determined by the Windows OS and currently selected Windows theme.

In other cases, tooltips are painted using the ToolTipStyle.WindowsXP style.

WindowsXP

Regular tooltips are painted as those in Windows XP.

Remarks

You can provide regular tooltips and SuperToolTips for controls (see ToolTipController.ToolTipType). The ToolTipStyle property specifies the look-and-feel settings of regular tooltips. If the ToolTipStyle property is set to Default, tooltips’ look-and-feel settings are determined automatically, according to the current OS and Windows theme applied. See ToolTipStyle to learn more.
