Thanks: 8 times

Just wondering, is that possible to add tooltips to the VObject "Marking"?
Such as "Drag here to resize" (On the 4 points), "Drag here to rotate" (On the side circle). Please advice.

Yes, of course.

The idea is to get currently selected object and check all its control points with current mouse position. If you are using Aurigma vector objects, most of them have the same points order, so in the sample below I use index of the point. In case of custom objects you will have to change the logic according to your implementation.

Private Sub _mlv_MouseMove(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As _
	System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles _mlv.MouseMove
End Sub

Private Sub UpdateTooltip()
	Dim toolTipText = ""

	If _mlv.CurrentDesigner.VObjects.Length > 0 Then
		Dim obj As Aurigma.GraphicsMill.WinControls.IVObject = _

		For i As Integer = 0 To obj.ControlPoints.Count - 1
			If obj.ControlPoints(i).HitTest( _
			 _mlv.PointToClient(Control.MousePosition), _mlv) Then
				If i >= 1 And i <= 8 Then
					toolTipText = "Drag here to resize"
				ElseIf i >= 9 And i <= 12 Then
					toolTipText = "Drag here to rotate"
				ElseIf i >= 13 And i <= 16 Then
					toolTipText = "Drag here to skew"
				End If

				Exit For
			End If
	End If

	_toolTip.SetToolTip(_mlv, toolTipText)
End Sub

void _mlv_MouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)

private void UpdateToolTip()
	string text = "";
	if (_mlv.CurrentDesigner.VObjects.Length > 0)
		Aurigma.GraphicsMill.WinControls.IVObject obj = 
		for (int i = 0; i < obj.ControlPoints.Count; i++)
			if (obj.ControlPoints[i].HitTest(
				if (i >= 1 && i <= 8)
					text = "Drag here to resize";
				else if (i >= 9 && i <= 12)
					text = "Drag here to rotate";
				else if (i >= 13 && i <= 16)
					text = "Drag here to skew";
	_toolTip.SetToolTip(_mlv, text);
