Context tool tips

I have some code that shows a tool tip when the mouse hovers over a lexeme. All works nicely. But I'd also like to show the tool tip when the user hits a key stroke sequence. This seems very difficult for two reasons:

1) There seems to be no way to show the context tool tip programmatically
2) It seems impossible to get the screen/control XY coordinates from caret/selection position; this prevents me from just showing a normal Winforms tool tip.

Any tips on how I can work round these two issues much appreciated.

Hi Robert,

Title: Tooltip for Key stroke sequence
I regret to let you know that currently we do not provide support for this feature in our code library.
