RepositoryItemTrackBar.BeforeShowValueToolTip Event

Allows you to provide custom tooltips for the thumb(s).

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors.Repository

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v20.1.dll

Declaration

[DXCategory("Events")]
public event TrackBarValueToolTipEventHandler BeforeShowValueToolTip
<DXCategory("Events")>
Public Event BeforeShowValueToolTip As TrackBarValueToolTipEventHandler

Event Data

The BeforeShowValueToolTip event's data class is DevExpress.XtraEditors.TrackBarValueToolTipEventArgs.

Remarks

You can enable tooltips for the control's thumb(s) via the RepositoryItemTrackBar.ShowValueToolTip property. By default, tooltips only display the current value. To provide custom tooltips for the thumb (for example, to format the value in a specific manner), handle the BeforeShowValueToolTip event. While handling this event, the custom tooltip must be assigned to the event's ShowArgs.ToolTip parameter.

Examples

The following code shows how to implement custom tooltips for a TrackBarControl's thumb.

To enable tooltips, the RepositoryItemTrackBar.ShowValueToolTip property is set to true. Custom tooltips are implemented via the TrackBarControl.BeforeShowValueToolTip event. The result is shown below:

TrackBar_CustomTooltips

trackBarControl1.Properties.ShowValueToolTip = true;
//...

private void trackBarControl1_BeforeShowValueToolTip(
object sender, DevExpress.XtraEditors.TrackBarValueToolTipEventArgs e) {
    e.ShowArgs.ToolTip = string.Format("Value = {0}", trackBarControl1.Value);
}
