public string ToolTipField { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

A string value that specifies the name of the required data source field.


The ToolTipField property is in effect if the ASPxMenuBase control is bound to a data source (via the ASPxDataWebControlBase.DataSourceID or ASPxDataWebControlBase.DataSource property).

Use the ToolTipField property to specify the bound data source’s data field (or an xml element’s attribute) which stores tooltip texts of menu items. The ToolTipField property maps the MenuItem.ToolTip properties of MenuItem objects to the specified data field’s values.

If the ToolTipField property of a data bound ASPxMenuBase control is not defined, the control can automatically obtain menu item tooltip texts from a data field whose name is “ToolTip” (which is equal to the MenuItem.ToolTip property’s name). You can also handle the ASPxMenuBase.ItemDataBound event to manipulate a menu item’s settings, as required.
