Public Property ToolTip As Object

Property Value

Type Description
Object

A System.Object specifying a tool tip, displayed at runtime when hovering a BaseLayoutItem's caption or tab caption.

Remarks

Generally, you use a string to specify the ToolTip property. You can also set any other visual control as a tooltip.

Examples

This example shows how to display a SuperTip as a BaseLayoutItem's tooltip, specified by the BaseLayoutItem.ToolTip property.

NOTE

Setting a SuperTip object directly as a BaseLayoutItem's tooltip is not supported, so you need to wrap a Super Tip object with a DevExpress.Xpf.Core.SuperTipControl container.

The result is shown in the following figure:
