    Hi,

    I have a single DocumentTabStrip in a  RadDock. There is a handy dropdown menu at the right of the dock that lists all open tabs in the tab strip. However, I am shortening the titles for the documents as they have very long names, and using a tooltip to display the full name (pretty much like Visual Studio). However these tooltips do not seem to carry over the the right hand menu.

    Is there any way of carrying these over, as the menu can be very confusing if the user is looking at several similar documents?

    Thanks in advance,

    Phil

    Does this mean it's not possible?

    Hi Phil,

    Thank you for the question.

    It is possible to show tooltips for the menu items of the RadDock menu. To do so, you need to access the menu as it is demonstrated in this article. Then, you need to set the ToolTipText property of the desired menu items.

    I hope that this information is helpful. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

    Best wishes,

    Hi,

    I was referring to the drop down menu of all the tabs docked in the documenttabstrip and not the context menu. Please can you assist in this. (see image)

    Hello Phil,

    Thank you for getting back to me.

    The ConextMenuService is responsible for displaying the menu in question as well. You should just check if the e.MenuType is ContextMenuType.ActiveWindowList.
