Type Default Description


true, if hints can be displayed for the current item; otherwise, false.


The ShowToolTips property specifies whether hints are displayed when the mouse pointer is hovering over the current item. By default, this feature is enabled. Set this property to false to prevent hints for the current item from being displayed. You can also disable hints for all context items displayed in the owner control, using the corresponding option available through the ContextButtonOptions property of the owner control.

To specify the hint text, title and icon type for the current item, use the ContextItem.ToolTip, ContextItem.ToolTipTitle and ContextItem.ToolTipIconType properties. To assign a SuperToolTip object to the current item, use the ContextItem.SuperTip property.
