Gets or sets the current edit button’s tooltip text.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v23.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Web


public string ToolTip { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

A string which specifies the text content of the current edit button’s tooltip.


Use the ToolTip property to define a tooltip text for an individual edit button. If a string is assigned to a button’s ToolTip property, the tooltip is shown whenever the mouse cursor pauses over the edit button. If the ToolTip property is set to an empty string (String.Empty), the tooltip is never shown.


This example demonstrates how to customize the collection of an editor’s edit buttons and how to change the DropDownButton position.

The default drop-down button’s position can be changed via the EditButton.Position property. Using this property, you can display the button at the left or at the right control side. To display the drop-down button at the custom position (between other edit buttons), hide the default button using the EditButton.Visible property. After that, you can create a custom drop-down button in the required place.


To work properly, a control should have only one drop-down button: a default one or custom one (with a hidden default drop-down button).

The code sample below demonstrates how to create a custom EditButtonCollection within the ASPxDateEdit control. The image below shows the result.


<dx:ASPxDateEdit ID="ASPxDateEdit1" runat="server" Width="220px" ClientInstanceName="dateedit">
     <ClientSideEvents ButtonClick="onButtonClick" />
     <DropDownButton Visible="False">
          <dx:EditButton Text="Today" Position="Left" ToolTip="Today">
          <dx:EditButton Position="Left" ToolTip="Previous day">

          <dx:EditButton ToolTip="Next day">

          <dx:DropDownButton ToolTip="Show calendar">
               <Image Url="~/Calendar.png">
          <dx:EditButton ToolTip="Clear">
               <Image Url="~/Clear.png">
function onButtonClick (s, e) {
     var date = dateedit.GetDate();
     switch (e.buttonIndex) {
          case 0:
               var today = new Date();
          case 1:
               date.setDate(date.getDate() - 1);
          case 2: 
               date.setDate(date.getDate() + 1);
          case 4:
