ListBoxTooltip - A class for displaying items' values in a tooltip

' --- The ListBoxTooltip class
' Usage in the client form:
'    Dim lstTT As New ListBoxTooltip
'    Private Sub Form_Load()
'        Set lstTT.ListBox = List1
'      End Sub
'    Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
'        Set lstTT.ListBox = Nothing
'    End Sub

Public WithEvents ListBox As ListBox

Private Sub ListBox_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, _
    Y As Single)
    Dim oldFont As StdFont, itemIndex As Long
    ' since a listbox doesn't have a TextHeight method
    ' we must borrow it from its Parent
    With ListBox.Parent
        Set oldFont = .Font
        Set .Font = ListBox.Font
        ' determine which element the mouse is on
        itemIndex = Y \ .TextHeight("A") + ListBox.TopIndex
        ' restore fonts
        Set .Font = oldFont
    End With
    ' set the tooltip to the current item's string
    If itemIndex < ListBox.ListCount Then
        ListBox.ToolTipText = ListBox.List(itemIndex)
        ListBox.ToolTipText = ""
    End If

End Sub
