           We are trying to upgrade the look of our ToolTips in our products. We are focusing our efforts on the ToolTips that display information about the object that is currently hovered in the graphical zones of our products. We want to be able to display some of the properties of that object arranged in some fashionable way. You could find an example (sketched in Paint) of the new ToolTips we want in the attached files.

           Our products are built on top of the Microsoft .NET WinForms framework with some specific WPF controls like your ScheduleView WPF RadControl. Our graphical areas are just ordinary WinForms Panels that we use as drawing surfaces (with GDI API).

           Our current requirements specifies that only include static information would be displayed in the ToolTip, but it is quite possible in a short timeline that we get the requirements to put some interactive content in the ToolTip like user actions (buttons or link buttons, …).

           I would be please to know if you offer any ToolTip control that we could use to accomplish our needs. We would be at ease to use any kind of technology (WinForms, WPF/XAML, HTML, ...). Our only restraint is that our graphical areas are built with WinForms. Do you have any recommendations to give us?

    Thanks a lot.

    Thank you for writing.

    The component that we offer to show tooltips is called RadOffice2007ScreenTipElement. However, this element can be used only with RadControls and will not work with the standard or any other controls. Basically, each RadControl have a ScreenTipNeeded event fired when the mouse hovers it and where you can create and display the desired screen tip. 

    More information and examples are available here:

    I hope that you find this information useful.

    RadChart for WinForms is obsolete. Now what?
