public virtual string ToolTip { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


A custom tooltip for the column.


When the View’s GridOptionsHint.ShowColumnHeaderHints option is set to true, column headers can show tooltips. The default tooltip is equal to the column’s caption (GridColumn.Caption). It shows non-trimmed, even if the caption itself is trimmed. To see a tooltip, users need to position their mouse pointer over the column’s header.

The code sample below illustrates how to add a custom tooltip to a grid column.


gridView1.Columns["productPrice"].ToolTip = "Price of the product per item";
