Property Value

Type Description

A SuperToolTip object associated with the item.


Bar items support regular(simple) tooltips and SuperToolTip objects (tooltips that support multiple text and image regions) . The type of tooltips displayed for bar items is determined by a ToolTipController object (by default, by the DefaultToolTipController). The SuperTip property allows you to assign a SuperToolTip object to the bar item. A regular hint is specified by the BarItem.Hint property.

If a bar button item displays a separate dropdown button, you can display a different SuperToolTip for this button via the BarItem.DropDownSuperTip property.

The BarManager’s ToolTipController property (ComponentEditorContainer.ToolTipController) determines the ToolTipController which manages tooltips for bar items.

The RibbonGalleryBarItem object inherits but does not support the SuperTip property. You can however, specify tooltips for individual gallery items within the RibbonGalleryBarItem. Use the GalleryItem.Hint or GalleryItem.SuperTip property to accomplish this.

See Tooltip Management for more information.
