    I'm using RadDiagram in a databound application. For each shape I have some additional information I want to provide. Is there any way to set the Tooltip of a shape? I tried to set the ToolTip property on the shape's style and even in the content of the shape I am not able to have a tooltip on a component. It seems like the Diagram itself disables all tooltips of child elements. Hope you can tell me a way to show tooltips on shapes.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi Peter,

     I just tried to add a ToolTip to our Org chart example and all looks ok on my side. You can check the attached screenshot. And here is the code for it:

    <Style TargetType="local:OrgChartShape" x:Key="OrgChartShapeStyle">
        <Setter Property="Position" Value="{Binding Position, Mode=TwoWay}" />
        <Setter Property="Visibility" Value="{Binding Visibility, Mode=TwoWay}" />
        <Setter Property="IsSelected" Value="{Binding IsSelected, Mode=TwoWay}" />
        <Setter Property="Background"
                Value="{Binding Branch, Converter={StaticResource BackgroundSelector}}" />
        <Setter Property="Padding" Value="0" />
        <Setter Property="ToolTip" Value="{Binding Position}" />

    Can you try this approach and let us know if it is working for you. 
    Kind regards,

    Hey Miro,

    thats exactly what I did. As a test, I rebuild my project step by step and found out that the ToolTip disappers when IsEnabled is set to false. I set this because I want no user interaction at that point. On my production application I am now disabling every feature (drag, resize, connect,...) with its own setter and leave IsEnabled on true. This approach works very well.

    Thank you for your hint.

    Best Regards,
