How to: Assign Hints to the NavBarControl's Items

The following sample code assigns hints to all items of the NavBarControl. This is performed via the NavElement.Hint property of NavBarItem objects. Item captions are assigned as hint text.

The NavBarControl.ShowLinkHint property is set to true to enable displaying link hints. Review the image below for an example of code execution results.

for (int i = 0; i < navBarControl1.Items.Count; i++) {
   NavBarItem currItem = navBarControl1.Items[i];
   currItem.Hint = currItem.Caption;
navBarControl1.ShowLinkHint = true;
