Namespace: DevExpress.XtraGauges.Win

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGauges.v21.1.Win.dll


public ToolTipController ToolTipController { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


The ToolTipController component which controls the appearance and behavior of the hints displayed for the gauge control.


The gauge control displays tooltips for gauge elements if the GaugeControl.ShowToolTips option is enabled.

By default, if the ToolTipController property is set to null, the appearance and behavior of tooltips is controlled by the default tooltip controller (it can be accessed via the ToolTipController.DefaultController static member or the DefaultToolTipController component). Changing the Default Tooltip Controller’s properties and handling its events affects how the tooltips for all the controls that don’t use custom tooltip controllers are displayed.

The ToolTipController property allows a custom ToolTipController component, which provides custom appearance and behavior settings for tooltips to be specified. Add a ToolTipController component to the form, and assign it to the ToolTipController property of all the controls whose tooltips must be controlled by that component.

For more information, see the Tooltips document.
