BarManager.ShowScreenTipsInMenus Property

Gets or sets whether bar item link tooltips should be displayed within context menus.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraBars

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraBars.v21.1.dll


public bool ShowScreenTipsInMenus { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


true if bar item link tooltips should be displayed within context menus; otherwise, false.


The ShowScreenTipsInMenus property allows you to enable hints for bar item links when they are displayed within sub menus or popup menus (not within toolbars). For toolbar hints, use the BarManager.ShowScreenTipsInToolbars property instead. To assign a required hint to a bar item, use the BarItem.Hint or BarItem.SuperTip property. The following image illustrates a disabled bar item link within a sub menu. The hint for this link describes what this link does and why it is currently disabled.


By default, the tooltips are handled by the DefaultToolTipController. You can use this component to customize style and behavior settings for tooltips.

See Tooltips for more information.
