Hello,
I'm wondering if is there any control that display a balloon over another control to display information. Something similar to the notices of windows SO system tray but in our aplication and over a button for example, and of course more powerfull than a simple tooltip. Where I can insert controls like buttons, textbox, etc...
Thanks!

Hi Iván Tajes,

Yes, this is possible for all rad elements by using screen tips. For RadButton for example you have to handle ScreenTipNeeded event. Here is a sample:

button1.ScreenTipNeeded += new ScreenTipNeededEventHandler(button1_ScreenTipNeeded);
 
void button1_ScreenTipNeeded(object sender, ScreenTipNeededEventArgs e)
{
    RadOffice2007ScreenTipElement screenTip = new RadOffice2007ScreenTipElement();
    screenTip.CaptionLabel.Margin = new Padding(3);
    screenTip.CaptionLabel.Text = "Sample";
    screenTip.MainTextLabel.Text = "description";
    e.Item.ScreenTip = screenTip;
}

Screen tips are rad controls and you can place any rad element inside. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, I will be glad to help.
 

All the best,

Hi Iván Tajes,

By specification RadScreenTip/RadToolTip is shown only when you hover an item that has a RadScreenTip/RadToolTip assigned. If you try to hover the tooltip itself, normally it will become hidden, because your mouse is not on the item of interest anymore. Considering this information, you cannot click a button, even though you can insert a button element in RadScreenTip.

We will consider implementing a generic popup control that will be suitable for your needs. However, I am not able to provide you with any specific time frame about it.

All the best,

Hello Sandeep,

You can subscribe to the ScreenTipNeeded event of a RadControl and set the Delay in the event handler, for example:
privatevoidradButton1_ScreenTipNeeded(objectsender, ScreenTipNeededEventArgs e)
{
  RadOffice2007ScreenTipElement screenTip = newRadOffice2007ScreenTipElement();
  screenTip.CaptionLabel.Margin = newPadding(3);
  screenTip.CaptionLabel.Text = "Sample";
  screenTip.MainTextLabel.Text = "On the Insert tab, the galleries include items that are designed to "+
    "coordinate with the overall look of your document. You can use these galleries to insert tables,"+
    "headers, footers, lists, cover pages, and other document building blocks. When you create pictures, charts, or"+
    "diagrams, they also coordinate with your current document look";
   
  e.Delay = 50;
  radButton1.ButtonElement.ScreenTip = screenTip;
}

This will show a ScreenTip in the specified time frame. The same customization is not available for RadToolTip though.

I hope this helps.

Hi All,

In addition to the answers here, you might also want to take a look at my Code Library Article which gives a sort of Tool Tip manager where you can change tooltips to a baloon style.

Hope that also helps

Hi,

Is there any way to get more information to the to the tool tip? Ie I have more information in the "Descrtiption" field and would like to show it in the tool tip as it would be to big for the appointment area itself.

Thanks

Hi,

Found it:

AppointmentElement

 

 

appointmentElement = e.Item as AppointmentElement;

 

 

 

 

if (appointmentElement != null)

 

{

screenTip.MainTextLabel.Text = appointmentElement.Appointment.Description;

appointmentElement.ScreenTip = screenTip;

}
