public DefaultBoolean ShowToolTips { get; set; }
Public Property ShowToolTips As DefaultBoolean

Property Value

Type Default Description


A DefaultBoolean enumeration value that specifies whether to display hints for tab form pages.


If the ShowToolTips property is set to Default or False, hints are not displayed. Set this property to True to display hints for tab form pages. A hint is displayed when a tab is hovered over with the mouse pointer. See the figure below.


By default, hints contain page captions specified using the TabFormPage.Text property. This may be useful if a caption is not visible in its entirety within a tab, as in the figure above. However, you can specify a custom SuperToolTip for a tab form page using the TabFormPage.SuperTip property.

By default, tooltips are controlled by the default ToolTipController accessible using the DefaultToolTipController component. You can provide a custom controller for tab form page hints using the TabFormControlBase.ToolTipController property. See Tooltips for details.
