14.9. ToolTips

In Chapter 2, we demonstrated tool tips—the helpful text that appears when the mouse hovers over an item in a GUI. Recall that the tool tips displayed in Visual Studio help you become familiar with the IDE’s features and serve as useful reminders for each toolbar icon’s functionality.
