public class SuperTip :

The following members return SuperTip objects:


A SuperTip is an expandable tooltip, capable of displaying multiple tooltip items. The following is the list of the available tooltip item types:

The following image shows a sample SuperTip consisting of four tooltip items:


To create a SuperTip, add the required tooltip items to the SuperTip.Items collection. Tooltip items will be displayed according to their order in this collection.

Using SuperTip outside the Ribbon and Bar Items

The SuperTip is designed to be used with bar/ribbon items. You can use the SuperTip with other WPF controls. Assign the SuperTipControl to a control’s ToolTip property, like in the code sample below.

                <dx:SuperTipHeaderItem Content="HeaderItem" />
                <dx:SuperTipItem Content="Item" />
                <!--  ...  -->


The following example creates a SuperTip consisting of four items. For the second item, the default layout of the item’s Content and Glyph is changed. The glyph is positioned on the right of the Content.

For the fourth item, the style is changed, so that the text is painted in gray.

The result is shown below:


        <!--Item 1-->
        <dxc:SuperTipHeaderItem Content="New"/>
        <!--Item 2-->
        <dxc:SuperTipItem Content="Create a new document" 
            <!--Change the default layout-->
                <Style TargetType="{x:Type dxc:Items2Panel}">
                    <Setter Property="Alignment" Value="Right"/>
                    <Setter Property="HorizontalIndent" Value="20"/>

        <!--Item 3-->
        <!--Item 4-->
        <dxc:SuperTipItem Content="Opens a new document in a new tab" >
            <!--Provide content template-->
                    <TextBlock FontFamily="Calibri" Foreground="Gray" FontSize="11" Text="{Binding}"/>
