Type Default Description


A String value that specifies the text of the hint for the current item.


The hint for the current context item can be displayed when it is hovered over with the mouse cursor (see ContextItem.ShowToolTips). The ToolTip property specifies the text of the hint. You can also specify the hint title, using the ContextItem.ToolTipTitle property. The type of icon to be displayed in the hint can be specified using the ContextItem.ToolTipIconType property.

You can also assign a SuperToolTip object to the current item. For this purpose, use the ContextItem.SuperTip property.

For the RatingContextButton objects, the ContextItem descendants, you can provide a custom regular tooltip for each rating point when handling the ContextItem.CustomToolTip event.
