How to: Implement Custom Tooltip for TrackBarControl's Thumb

The following code shows how to implement custom tooltips for a TrackBarControl's thumb.

To enable tooltips, the RepositoryItemTrackBar.ShowValueToolTip property is set to true. Custom tooltips are implemented via the TrackBarControl.BeforeShowValueToolTip event. The result is shown below:


trackBarControl1.Properties.ShowValueToolTip = true;

private void trackBarControl1_BeforeShowValueToolTip(
object sender, DevExpress.XtraEditors.TrackBarValueToolTipEventArgs e) {
    e.ShowArgs.ToolTip = string.Format("Value = {0}", trackBarControl1.Value);
