Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v19.2.dll


public ToolTipController ToolTipController { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


The ToolTipController component controlling the appearance and behavior of hints displayed for this control.


The availability and content of hints displayed for controls can be controlled by the BaseControl.ToolTip, BaseControl.SuperTip and BaseControl.ShowToolTips properties. By default, hints display only the specified text, and have the default shape and appearance. The content, appearance and behavior of tooltips can be customized using tooltip controllers.

By default, the ToolTipController property is set to null, and the control's tooltips are handled by the Default ToolTipController, which is available via the DefaultToolTipController component. Changing this object's properties and handling its events, affect hints displayed for all controls whose ToolTipController property is set to null.

To make a control's tooltips handled by a specific tooltip controller, add a ToolTipController component to the form and assign it to the control's BaseControl.ToolTipController property.

Please refer to Tooltips for details.
