Gets or sets the tooltip controller component that controls the appearance, position and content of the hints displayed for a tab control.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraTab

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v19.1.dll


public virtual ToolTipController ToolTipController { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


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


The tab control can display tooltips for page headers. The availability of hints is controlled by the XtraTabControl.ShowToolTips property. To provide tooltips, you can use the XtraTabPage.Tooltip and XtraTabPage.SuperTip properties.

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 Tooltoip 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 Tooltip Management document.
