The ToolTipML property value has the following format.

<Language ID>=<tooltip>  

<Language ID> is a Windows standard three-letter language ID and <caption> is the caption text for this language. Semicolons are used to separate entries.

In the following example, values are set for Danish (DAN) and English (ENG).

DAN=Dette felt indeholder kundens navn;ENG=This field contains the customer name
