Most visual controls can display context-sensitive Help as well as fly-by Hints at run time. The HelpContext and HelpFile properties establish a Help context number and a Help file for the control.

The Hint property contains the text string that appears when the user moves the mouse over a control or menu item. To enable Hints, set ShowHint to True; setting ParentShowHint to True causes the control's ShowHint property to have the same value as its parent's.
