    Hi,

    Setting the Tool Tip Text property for a Tool Window seems to do nothing.. I was expecting a Tool Tip to appear when I hover over the controls title area. Is there a problem with this feature?

    Thanks,
    Brad

    Hello Bradley Lane,

    Thank you for the question.

    As the description of the property states, a ToolTip is shown when you hover the tabitem of a ToolWindow (in case the tabitem is visible):
    "Gets or sets the tooltip to be displayed when the mouse hovers the tabitem of this panel."

    However, this property is not applicable to the titlebar part and currently we do not support such functionality.

    If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hi Nikolay,

    Would it be possible to add this feature to a future version?

    Regards,
    Brad

    Hi Bradley Lane,

    This feature will be included in Q1 2010 and you will be able to show a tooltip for the titlebar part of a ToolTabStrip by subscribing to the ToolTipTextNeeded event of the ToolTabStrip.

    If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

    Kind regards,
