Tooltip Management

Most of the DevExpress .NET controls support tooltips, which are automatically displayed when hovering over controls. In addition, specific controls allow different tooltips to be displayed for their different visual elements.

Tooltips are managed by the ToolTipController component, which provides means to customize the appearance and behavior of hints. You can customize a hint's appearance, position and time intervals that must pass before a hint is invoked or hidden, etc. It is also possible to dynamically control the appearance and contents of tooltips via events.
