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 tab pages.


The availability and content of hints displayed for tab pages can be controlled by the XtraMdiTabPage.Tooltip, XtraMdiTabPage.SuperTip and XtraTabbedMdiManager.ShowToolTips properties. By default, hints display only the specified text, and have the default shape and appearance. The content, appearance and behavior of tooltips can be customized using tooltip controllers.

By default, the ToolTipController property is set to null, and the control’s tooltips are handled by the Default ToolTipController, which is available via the DefaultToolTipController component. Changing this object’s properties and handling its events, affects hints displayed for all controls whose ToolTipController property is set to null.

To make tab pages’ tooltips handled by a specific tooltip controller, add a ToolTipController component to the form, and assign it to the ToolTipController property.

Please refer to Tooltips for details.
