Is there a way to change an esriControl's tooltip?

I tried using the ICommand interface but the tooltip propertry is read-only.

If I have to build a whole new ICommand and/or ITool is there anyway I can extend an esriControl so I do not have to build a new control from scratch?

I inadvertently deleted a comment by @blah238 (my apologies), who would like to know what an "esricontrol" might be. – whuber Jun 3 '12 at 17:32
Hi, Thank you for your response. Esricontrols allow you to use the controls in ArcMap/ArcCatalog in your custom application. Here is a page listing allow of them. They all implement the ICommand interface. Thanks again.… David – Davidst95 Jun 3 '12 at 21:25
