If you want to make persistent tooltips, you should set the following properties on a ToolTip instance:

tooltipinstance.ShowDuration = int.MaxValue

I know that 2,147,483,647 seconds for a tooltip display time in theory is not "persistent", but trust me, a user will experience it like that :-)

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask them.

Kind regards,

in v2 of the Library, which is released yesterday, you can set a Duration for the properties (no more of type Integer).

This means you can also set a Duration.Forever as a value for the DisplayTime property, which makes a ToolTip persistent.
