public ToolTipController ToolTipController { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
ToolTipController null

A ToolTipController component specifying hint settings.


ToolTipController components allow you to customize the appearance and behavior of hints displayed for all the visual elements owned by the component. To customize the hint settings at design time, you will need to create a new ToolTipController component, customize its settings as needed and assign it to the component’s ToolTipController property. Note: a single ToolTipController component can be assigned to multiple components/controls to provide a common hint appearance and behavior for all the DevExpress controls in your application.

If a ToolTipController property is not initialized with any ToolTipController component, hint settings are specified by the default tooltip controller, which can be accessed via the static ToolTipController.DefaultController field. In this case, you can only customize the appearance and behavior of hints via code.

Use the ComponentEditorContainer.GetToolTipController method to obtain the actual controller providing tooltip functionality for the container component.
