Hello,

I'm trying to define a GridViewColumn Tooltip, but without any success so far! I already tried to use ToolTipService.Tooltip to specify a TextBlock by code, but nothing is displayed!

Any suggestion?

Thanks.

Regards,
Rogério

Hello Rogério,

If you want tooltip for every cell in specific column you can use the approach from this demo:

 <Controls:GridViewColumn Width="*"  HeaderText="Product Logo (Unbound)">
                    <Controls:GridViewColumn.CellStyle>
                        <Style TargetType="telerikGridView:GridViewCell">
                            <Setter Property="Template">
                                <Setter.Value>
                                    <ControlTemplate TargetType="telerikGridView:GridViewCell">
                                        <Border ToolTipService.ToolTip="{Binding ImageUrl}" BorderThickness="{TemplateBinding BorderThickness}"
                                            BorderBrush="{TemplateBinding BorderBrush}"
                                            Background="{TemplateBinding Background}">
                                            <HyperlinkButton TargetName="_blank" NavigateUri="{Binding Url}">
                                                <Image Source="{Binding ImageUrl, Converter={StaticResource converter}}" />
                                            </HyperlinkButton>
                                        </Border>
                                    </ControlTemplate>
                                </Setter.Value>
                            </Setter>
                        </Style>
                    </Controls:GridViewColumn.CellStyle>
                </Controls:GridViewColumn>

Sorry, but I cannot see any ToolTip displayed on the sample that you suggested!!

I was talking about displaying a ToolTip, only, for the columns Header, not for the Cell.

Hello Rogério,


Here is some sample code to programmatically assign a tooltip text to the header cells.
I believe there is also a XAML based way but it would require to modify the 'fat" xaml template of the header cell. So I think the best solution for your scenario is something like:
public Page()  
        {  
            InitializeComponent();  
            this.TestGridView.RowLoaded += new EventHandler<RowLoadedEventArgs>(TestGridView_RowLoaded);  
              
        }  
 
        void TestGridView_RowLoaded(object sender, RowLoadedEventArgs e)  
        {  
            if(e.Row is GridViewHeaderRow)  
            {  
                GridViewHeaderRow headerRow = e.Row as GridViewHeaderRow;  
                foreach (GridViewHeaderCell cell in headerRow.Items)  
                {  
                    cell.SetValue(ToolTipService.ToolTipProperty,"test tooltip");  
                }  
            }  
        } 

I am aware this is a kind of Winforms approach but it will do the job. Meanwhile we are doing our best to provide easy and declarative way to achieve such tasks for our future releases.

Best wishes,

Hi Celeste,

We have added a Header property to the column. You may set the header to any visual you want . For example you may set the Header to a TextBlock to display the column name and set the desired  tooltip to this textblock .
Let me know if you find troubles implementing this.

All the best,

I' ve tried what you explain in the answer and it worked.

But I am having problem with gridviewcolumns that I am creating by code and adding to gridview, because throws an exception.

                
                while (condition)
                {
                column = 
new GridViewDataColumn();  
                TextBlock header_t = new TextBlock();  
                header_t.Text = col.TITLE;  
                ToolTipService.SetToolTip(header_t, "test MCM");  
                column.Header = header_t;  
                .....  
                gridview.Columns.Add(column);  
                }
 


It throws an exception in gridview.Columns.Add in the second iteration. If I comment:

                TextBlock header_t = new TextBlock();     
                header_t.Text = col.TITLE;     
                ToolTipService.SetToolTip(header_t, "test MCM");  
 
everythings works.

Hi Celeste,

We had such known issue with headers. Can you please download the latest internal build and give it a try. I believe it has been fixed and switching to the newer dills should help here.

Hi Pavel,

I'm trying your approach to adding tooltips to GridViewDataColumn column header cells. I'm using  RadControls_for_Silverlight_4_2010_1_0422_TRIAL version of the controls. My problem is that GridViewHeaderRow.Cells returns only one GridViewHeaderCel despite the fact that I have 7 columns in the grid. The tooltip on the first column gets set as expected, but the remaining six columns are never processed by the foreach loop.

How can I set tooltips on the remaining column headings?

My XAML is:
                <telerikControls:RadGridView x:Name="permissionsGridView" 
                                             Grid.Row="1" 
                                             Background="{StaticResource DetailAreaBackgroundBrush}" 
                                             ShowGroupPanel="False" 
                                             ItemsSource="{Binding Mode=OneWay}" 
                                             AutoGenerateColumns="False" 
                                             IsReadOnly="{Binding Path=Current.User.CanUpdate, Mode=OneWay, Converter={StaticResource NotOperatorConverter}, Source={StaticResource WebContext}}" 
                                             CanUserFreezeColumns="False" 
                                             CanUserReorderColumns="False" 
                                             CanUserSortColumns="True" 
                                             CanUserInsertRows="False" 
                                             CanUserDeleteRows="False" 
                                         > 
                    <telerikControls:RadGridView.SortDescriptors> 
                        <telerikData:SortDescriptor Member="ModuleName" /> 
                    </telerikControls:RadGridView.SortDescriptors> 
                     
                    <telerikControls:RadGridView.Columns> 
                        <!-- Module Names--> 
                        <telerikControls:GridViewDataColumn Header="Module"  DataMemberBinding="{Binding Path=ModuleName, Mode=OneWay}" /> 
 
                        <!-- Permissions -->

                foreach (GridViewHeaderCell headerCell in headerRow.Cells) 
                { 
                    headerCell.SetValue(ToolTipService.ToolTipProperty, "Test Tooltip"); 
                } 
            } 
        } 
    } 

What am I missing?

Hi,

 You can set EnableColumnVirtualization to false to avoid this.

Hi,

I'm using the latest version of RadControl and I need to set tooltip for GridViewColumn in a way the column bind to a feild and the tooltip bind to another feild .

by using silverlight datagrid ,here was how I implemeted it:

 

<data:DataGridTemplateColumn Header="Filter">
    <data:DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate>
        <DataTemplate>
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding Description}" ToolTipService.ToolTip="{Binding FilterHint}" Width="100" Margin="0,5"/>
        </DataTemplate>
    </data:DataGridTemplateColumn.CellTemplate>
</data:DataGridTemplateColumn>

 

 

In telerik ,I have tried this and it didn't work

 

 

<GridView:GridViewDataColumn Header="Filter" Width="230" DataMemberBinding="{Binding Description}"  IsReadOnly="True">
                    <GridView:GridViewDataColumn.ToolTipTemplate>
                        <DataTemplate>
                            <StackPanel>
                                <TextBlock Text="{Binding FilterHint}" Width="100" Margin="0,5"/>
                            </StackPanel>
                        </DataTemplate>
                    </GridView:GridViewDataColumn.ToolTipTemplate>
</GridView:GridViewDataColumn>

 


Actually I have realized when both GridViewColumn and textBlock bind to one field ,it working . but I need it to bind them to different fileds.

I appreciate your help,

Thank you

Hi,
I am trying to get the grid view column tooltip to work and none of the solutions from this post were helpful.


ValidatedInfo is an observable collection of a class(private ObservableCollection<ValidatedCounterReportInfo> ValidatedInfo;) and each column in the grid is associated to a property.
The data displays fine in the grid and everything else works as expected but none of the tooltips are showing up.


Below is the WPF code:
xmlns:TelerikInput="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView"

Can you help me understand the problem here.


Thanks
