How to Add ToolTips to Controls on a Windows Form or Tooltip to button in vb.net/C# or .NET - How can I display a tooltip over a button using Windows forms or how to set hand symbol to button

Hi friends, in this article I will explain about How to Add ToolTips to Controls on a Windows Form or Tooltip to button in vb.net/C# or .NET - How can I display a tooltip over a button using Windows forms or how to set hand symbol to button.
In previous articles I already explained about Windows Forms.
Lets I will explain how to add tooltips to button
First create one new project.
File--- New---Project---select windows Application --give name to form as aspdotnet-roja.vb

Then one form will be created. Drag and Drop the ToolTip control from ToolBox to the Form as shown in the figure.

Take one button on the form and give the id and text as ASPDOTNETROJA
Set the text of the property to the tool tip text you would like to display.I give as "Connect to ASPDOTNETROJA facebook").
Double click on the button and write the following code in the Form Load
ToolTip1.SetToolTip(AspdotnetRoja, "Connect to ASPDOTNETROJA facebook")
I explained with one small example.
I take one button and I redirect to my facebook page when anyone click on the button.
Below is the code for my example.
In VB.NET:
Public Class Form1
    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        ToolTip1.SetToolTip(AspdotnetRoja, "Connect to ASPDOTNETROJA facebook")
AspdotnetRoja.Cursor = System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.Hand
    End Sub
    Private Sub AspdotnetRoja_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles AspdotnetRoja.Click
        Process.Start("www.facebook.com/aspdotnetroja")

    End Sub
End Class

In C#:
using Microsoft.VisualBasic;
using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Data;
using System.Diagnostics;
Public Class Form1
{
      private void Form1_Load(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
      {
            ToolTip1.SetToolTip(AspdotnetRoja, "Connect to ASPDOTNETROJA facebook");
AspdotnetRoja.Cursor = System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.Hand;
      }
      private void AspdotnetRoja_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
      {
            Process.Start("www.facebook.com/aspdotnetroja");
      }
    Public Form1()
      {
            Load += Form1_Load;
      }
}
Save the program and Run. The output of above program is as shown in the below figure.
