InteractiveToolTip - Tooltips you can click on!

A few months ago I was working on a code-analysis tool for a project. The tool had the ability to detect a wide range of issues with the code under analysis, and as many of these problems could be corrected automatically I started looking at a suitable user-interface for presenting the information to the user and allowing them to choose whether to apply the automated fixes. After trying a few ideas out, I hit on the idea of using a balloon-style tooltip which could be displayed adjacent to the piece of code with a problem. This took care of the presentation, but of course you can't put controls into WinForms tooltips... I hit Google thinking that I couldn't possibly be the only person out there with this problem. I wasn't, but I also couldn't find any solutions, just a lot of people asking how to do it. Undeterred, I started to research how tooltips work.
