Name Description

The style of regular tooltips is automatically determined by the Windows OS and currently selected Windows theme. In Windows Vista and Windows 7, if no classic Windows theme is applied, tooltips are painted using the ToolTipStyle.Windows7 style. In other cases, tooltips are painted using the ToolTipStyle.WindowsXP style.


Regular tooltips are painted as those in Windows XP.



Regular tooltips are painted as those in Windows 7 (this style is in effect when a program runs under Windows Vista or Windows 7, provided that no classic Windows theme is applied).



The ToolTipStyle property allows you to specify look-and-feel settings for regular tooltips. The look-and-feel settings of SuperToolTips are not controlled by the ToolTipStyle property.
