Set ErrorProvider ToolTip Duration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've created an application that shows a lot of information in the tooltip when the ErrorProvider is set as an error.  The tooltip only appears about 4 seconds and then disappears.  Is there a property somewhere that I can set a longer duration for the ErrorProvider tooltips?  Perhaps 10 seconds instead of 4?

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the quick response but this does not address my issue.  My tooltip does reappear, but I want to make the duration that it appears longer.  I downloaded this project from codeproject, but it does not seem to have a property to set a longer duration.

  • Hi Michael,

    For my research, I found that the ToolTip continue displaying when the when the ErrorProvider blinks.

    I have tried to customize ErrorProvider to set the blink time. However, I failed to set the ToolTip display time.

    Maybe we can set the BlinkStyle to AlwaysBlink then to its previous style to keep the ToolTip display. But I found it not easy to set the timer and get the accurate time when the ToolTip begins to show...

  • Hi Hellipking,

    I was looking to extend the duration of the tooltip, not the blinking of the icon next to the field that the SetError is associated with.
