Property Value

Type Description

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


The ToolTipField property is in effect if a menu is bound to a data source.

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 ToolTip properties of menu item objects to the specified data field's values.

If the ToolTipField property of a data bound menu is not defined, the control can automatically obtain menu item tooltip texts from a data field whose name is "ToolTip". You can also use the MenuSettingsBase.ItemDataBound property to manipulate a menu item's settings as required.
