Hi,

I am trying to add a tooltip to a RadDropDownListElement embedded in a Ribbonbar.

One may add tooltip text directly, to the ListElement or to the Textbox, but no one results in a tooltip being displayed.

I do not wish to add tooltip to individual items in the dropdownlist, but just one tooltip to the entire control.

Any advice?

/Brian

Hi Brian,

Thank you for writing.

The improper behavior is caused because the hover action in the RadDropDownListElement is actually consumed by its children. In this scenario, the ToolTipText property value of the parent element which you have set does not propagate to its children. I have logged this issue in our feedback portal. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your vote/comment to it on the following link - feedback item. I have also updated your Telerik points.

The item is already in development and a fix will be introduced in our next official release, scheduled for the beginning of January 2016. As a temporary solution, you can handle the ToolTipTextNeeded event. Alternatively you can access the children elements and set their ToolTipText property. I am sending you a short video showing how this can be achieved in the designer of Visual Studio.

I hope this helps. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.

Regards,
