Hello,

is it possible to show pop-up infos (like in Windows everywhere) to your controls? A search doesn't Show ANY Information About that which surprises me extremely. Especially I want to show the complete entry of this RadDropDownList when it is too Long to show in the list.

Thank you in advance!

Hello,

Telerik UI for WinForms suite and its controls offer tooltips and screentips which represents a small rectangular window that displays a brief description when the user hovers over control or an element. I would recommend you to have a look at the following articles which demonstrates how to use both of the popup windows:

https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/telerik-presentation-framework/tooltips-and-screentips/tooltips

https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/telerik-presentation-framework/tooltips-and-screentips/screen-tips 

As to the RadDropDownList you can show tooltips for the drop down items as well. Please refer to the following code snippet:

        public RadForm1()
        {
            InitializeComponent(); 
            this.radDropDownList1.ToolTipTextNeeded += radDropDownList1_ToolTipTextNeeded;
            this.radDropDownList1.VisualListItemFormatting += radDropDownList1_VisualListItemFormatting;
        }
        
        private void radDropDownList1_VisualListItemFormatting(object sender, VisualItemFormattingEventArgs args)
        {
            args.VisualItem.ToolTipText = args.VisualItem.Text;
        }

        private void radDropDownList1_ToolTipTextNeeded(object sender, ToolTipTextNeededEventArgs e)
        {
            RadTextBoxItem tb = sender as RadTextBoxItem;
            if (tb != null)
            {
                e.ToolTipText = tb.Text;
            }
        }

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
