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:SimpleButton>
    <dx:SimpleButton.ToolTip>
        <dx:SuperTipControl>
            <dx:SuperTip>
                <dx:SuperTipHeaderItem Content="HeaderItem" />
                <dx:SuperTipItem Content="Item" />
                <!--  ...  -->
            </dx:SuperTip>
        </dx:SuperTipControl>
    </dx:SimpleButton.ToolTip>
</dx:SimpleButton>

Examples

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:
