    i just downloaded and installed the farpoint evaluation package for .Net windows forms. i inherited a project that makes use of various farpoint components and i need access to these components (e.g., FarPoint.Win.Spread.TipAppearance). however, the only components that i see in the toolbox under the FarPoint.Win.Spread namespace are FormulatTextBox, FpSpread, and FormulaProvider... i've tried dragging the dll to the tool box and adding it to the toolbox through the "browse" dialog with no success. i was under the impression that this is a full featured evaluation... am i wrong? anyway, any direction would be great :-) thanks!

    The FpSpread component is what you need.  It has many classes in it such as the TextTipAppearance.  For example:

    Dim app As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.TipAppearance
    app.BackColor = Color.Yellow
    app.Font = New Font("Comic Sans MS", 12)
    app.ForeColor = Color.Red

    FpSpread1.TextTipPolicy = FarPoint.Win.Spread.TextTipPolicy.Floating
    FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells(0, 0).Text = "Text Tip Appearance"
    FpSpread1.TextTipAppearance = app
