    Notify Icon balloon tip time

    When I do

    Code:
    notifyIcon1.ShowBalloonTip(1, "Title", "Text", ToolTipIcon.Info);
    The first parameter is suposed to be an int that represents how many seconds to show the balloon tip. So when I set it to 1 it should show it for 1 second.

    But it doesn't. It shows it for (it seems like) a random set amount of time. I tried clicking other windows and stuff but it doesn't always apear to effect the time.

    Does anyone know why?

    Maybe because it's pre-release C# 2.0. I haven't even found documentation about the parameters of the function on MSDN. Can you give a link ?

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I've noticed the same behavior, and I too put it down to being a beta thing. See if a bug reports been submitted on MSDN for it perhaps?

    I got this from the sugestion part of the beta site.

    http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/produc...1-181b3276b8e4

    It says the time is really in milliseconds and the minimume it can be is 5 seconds and the max is 30 (due to windows).

    Actually - the site says between 10 and 30.
