NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Navigation


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 control. To specify hint settings at design time, you will need to create a new ToolTipController component, customize its settings as needed and assign it to the control’s ToolTipController property. Note that one ToolTipController component can be assigned to multiple container components/controls to provide a common appearance and behavior for all the DevExpress controls in your application.

If the 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 instance, you can customize the appearance and behavior of hints only via code.

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