    I've been trying to implement tooltips for the ticks in the slider. I want these to be shown when the slider thumb is dragged, but also on mouse enter for the individual ticks when the thumb is not being dragged. To do this I needed to capture dragstarted/dragstopped events, which I managed to work around as in this thread. Now, these are my feature requests for the slider:

    1. Add the dragstarted/dragstopped events out of the box.

    2. Add tooltip support out of the box

    3. It would be awesome if the slider ticks could be created from a collection of objects, not only a double collection. What I'm building is a component for rating language skills. Each level in the rating scale is a LevelItem object with name, description, etc. If the slider could be bound to these objects, and the items in the ticktemplate (and of course the tooltips) could be bound against the various properties in the objects, that would make my job a lot easier.

    Hi Henrik,

    Thank you for the wonderful suggestions. The request from your previous thread  would be taken into serious consideration for the next release, along with the individual tick tooltip idea. Both of them are worth implementing.
    If there is enough demand for you last feature request - binding the Ticks collection to a collection of type different than DoubleCollection, we will surely consider implementing it.

    Once again, I would like to thank you for the great post and if you have any other suggestions, do not hesitate to write us as soon as possible.

    Kind regards,

    Has out of the box tooltip support been implemented yet (as of Q2 2011)? I don't see anything in the help or samples about it. Thanks.

    Hi Alan,

    No, currently , there is no "ootb" ToolTip support in RadSlider. You have to edit its ControlTemplate and add ToolTips where they are needed.

    Thanks Petar.

    Is there an PITS entry for this so that I can vote for it?

    Hello Alan,

    Could you please elaborate more on the feature request for the out-of-the-box ToolTip support. Do you want to have a ToolTip only when the mouse enters a thumb, or do you want to have a ToolTip when the mouse enters the slider anywhere. Right now you can do the following:

    <telerik:RadSlider  ToolTipService.ToolTip="{Binding Value, RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}" />

    With that, wherever you point the mouse, a ToolTip will appear as long as the mouse is above the slider.

    If that is not what you have in mind, let us know. I'd be glad to further continue the discussion with you.

    Best wishes,

    Kiril,

    What I would like is a tooltip that shows only while you are dragging the thumb. Also, it would be great if we could customize the tooltip text via an IValueConverter in case some conversion is necessary.

    For example, I might have a slider that indicates degrees (0 - 360). So, as the user is is sliding the thumb, the tooltip could show what value that are currently positioned at (e.g. 90°). When they release the slider thumb, the tooltip can is no longer needed.

    I hope this helps.

    Hello Alan,

    Thank you very much for clarifying. Well, currently there is no way to achieve this scenario out of the box. I've added a PITS item under the name "Slider: Out-of-the-box support for ToolTip" and it will be available for tracking and voting tomorrow the latest. If it gathers enough popularity we'll definitely implement it. Meanwhile, we've prepared a small application which demonstrates how to achieve the desired result with a little bit of code. Please take a look at the attached project and let me know if it helps.

    All the best,
