A Peek Form is a popup that allows you to display a custom content for an OfficeNavigationBar control item being hovered over. The form’s content needs to be provided via the OfficeNavigationBar.QueryPeekFormContent event. If no content is provided, the Peek Form is not displayed.

By default, the Peek Form is displayed after a short delay (OfficeNavigationBar.PeekFormShowDelay) on hovering items. The ShowPeekForm method allows you to manually display the Peek Form for individual items, even if they are not being hovered over at the moment.

See OfficeNavigationBar.ShowPeekFormOnItemHover to learn more.
