When I subscribe to the tooltip needed event of radspineditor, I find that the tool-tip only appears when mouse hovers over the arrow buttons of radspineditor element. How can I make sure that the same tool-tip also displays when mouse is over the text box portion of radspineditor?

I am using 2008 Q1 SP1 version.

Thanks
Sunil

Hello Sunil,

Sorry, I’ve tried everything I could think of, setting a tool tip on the TextBoxItem inside the spinner, using the ToolTip control from the windows toolbox and could not get that tooltip to show while the mouse hovers over the spinner control.

I would suggest a normal RadTextBox or a masked editbox if the tooltip is very important for your application

Hope this helps, if you have any other questions or comments, please let me know,

Best Regards,

Hello Sunil,

Thank you for writing.

RadSpinEditor internally uses MS TextBox for its textbox part, so in order to set a ToolTip to this textbox, you should use the standard ToolTip. Just drop the ToolTip component on your form and then in the form constructor define the tooltip text as shown below:

this.toolTip1.SetToolTip(this.radSpinEditor1.SpinElement.TextBoxItem.HostedControl, "Custom ToolTip Text");

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

Kind regards,

Hi Peter,

Thanks for your help.

In the Q1 2008 SP1 version that I am using,  there is no 'TextBoxItem' property of 'SpinElement'. So I cannot implement your suggested solution.

Thanks

Hello Sunil,

Please accept my apologies for the misunderstanding.

You should use the Children collection for your version:

((RadTextBoxItem)radSpinEditor1.SpinElement.Children[2].Children[1])
instead of TextBoxItem property.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

Kind regards,

Hi,
I'm having the same issue but in VB. I have the following code and it also only displays the tooltip only when the mouse is over the selection buttons but not in the main textbox part of the control. Any suggestions?

J
ToolTip1.SetToolTip(RSEDaysPriorEtohResults, "Add page of Etoh results for this number of prior days. Limited to previous 20 results total.")

Hi Jeffrey,

Thank you for writing.

RadSpinEditor contains inside a Microsoft TextBox control which tooltip should be set independently from the spineditor control tooltip:
ToolTip2.SetToolTip(RSEDaysPriorEtohResults.SpinElement.TextBoxItem.HostedControl, "Add page of Etoh results for this number of prior days. Limited to previous 20 results total.")

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Peter
