ToolTip.AutomaticDelay Property

public int AutomaticDelay { get; set; }
member this.AutomaticDelay : int with get, set
Public Property AutomaticDelay As Integer

Property Value


The automatic delay, in milliseconds. The default is 500.


The AutomaticDelay property enables you to set a single delay value, which is then used to set the values of the AutoPopDelay, InitialDelay, and ReshowDelay properties. Each time the AutomaticDelay property is set, the following values are set by default.

Property Default Value
AutoPopDelay 10 times the AutomaticDelay property value.
InitialDelay Equal to the AutomaticDelay property value.
ReshowDelay 1/5 of the AutomaticDelay property value.

These properties can also be set independently once the AutomaticDelay property has been set. For more information, see the AutoPopDelay, InitialDelay, and ReshowDelay properties. This property is typically used to provide a consistent delay pattern for your ToolTip windows.
