Name Description

The default tooltip type. The actual tooltip type is determined by a control.


A regular tooltip that consists of the title and contents regions.


A SuperToolTip that supports multiple text and image regions.


A tooltip that allows you to display any control in the FlyoutPanel control.


A tooltip that utilizes the HTML template assigned to the controller’s HtmlTemplate property.


The ToolTipController component allows regular tooltips, flyout hints, and SuperToolTip objects to be displayed for controls. The type of tooltips is specified by the ToolTipType property.

DevExpress simple controls (editors, buttons, listboxes, etc.) generally provide ToolTip and SuperTip properties that allow you to set regular tooltips and SuperToolTip objects respectively. For other controls, you can use the ToolTipController.SetToolTip and ToolTipController.SetSuperTip methods to specify tooltips.
