Property Value

Type Default Description


true if group hints are displayed; otherwise false.


Use the NavElement.Hint property of a NavBarGroup object to specify a group’s hint. The desired NavBarGroup object can be obtained via the NavBarControl.Groups property.

You can also specify group hints by writing a NavBarControl.GetHint event handler.


The following sample code assigns hints to all groups of the NavBarControl control. This is performed via the NavElement.Hint property of NavBarGroup objects. Group captions are assigned as hint text.

The NavBarControl.ShowGroupHint property is set to true to enable displaying of group hints. Review the image below for an example of code execution results.

   NavBarGroup currGroup = navBarControl1.Groups[i];
   currGroup.Hint = currGroup.Caption;
navBarControl1.ShowGroupHint = true;
