A string value that represents the current Action’s tooltip.


Use the ToolTip property to specify a custom text for an Action’s tooltip. The tooltip is displayed when a user hovers a mouse over an Action.

By default, a tooltip is set to the ActionBase.Caption property value. You can set another value in the Controller’s constructor or Designer. This value will be saved to the Application Model‘s IModelAction node. You can change this value in the Model Editor.

When the property’s value changes, the ActionBase.Changed event is raised.
