I sent it as an attachment but since you’re going through codeplex they are probably stripping it out. Send me your real email address and I will send you the update

Here is the whole function. There is a bug fix in this that you don’t have. This is why I am sending it to you.

public virtual void OnMouseMove(MouseEventArgs e)

{

if (!Enabled) return;

if (MouseMove != null)

{

MouseMove(this, e);

}

//Kevin - found cases where mousing into buttons doesn't set the selection. This arose with the office 2010 style

if (!Selected)

{ SetSelected(true); Owner.Invalidate(this.Bounds); }

if (_TT != null)

if (!_TT.Active && this.ToolTip != string.Empty && this.ToolTipTitle != string.Empty)

{

_TT.ToolTipTitle = this.ToolTipTitle;

_TT.ToolTipIcon = this.ToolTipIcon;

_TT.SetToolTip(this.Owner, this.ToolTip);

_TT.Active = true;

}

}
