    We have a RadPropertyGrid with its items being auto-generated.

    How can I set Tooltips to the labels and/or to the editors being generated???

    Tooltips should be set inside auto-generation

    Hello Peter,

    I can suggest you the following steps to set Tooltips to the Labels and Editors of the PropertyGrid:

    1.   Add a Name of your PropertyGrid in your XAML code:
    <telerik:RadPropertyGrid  x:Name="PropertyGrid1"/>

    2.   Attach an EventHandler for the FieldLoaded event of the PropertyGrid in the code behind of your application:
    this.PropertyGrid1.FieldLoaded += PropertyGrid1_FieldLoaded;

    3.   Set ToolTips in the EventHandler method for the Labels and the Editors of the PropertyGrid:
    void PropertyGrid1_FieldLoaded(object sender,
             Telerik.Windows.Controls.Data.PropertyGrid.FieldEventArgs e)


       //ToolTip for the Editors

       ToolTip editorToolTip =
    new ToolTip();

       editorToolTip.Content =
    "Your Editor Content";

    as FrameworkElement, editorToolTip)

       //ToolTip for the Labels

       ToolTip labelToolTip =
    new ToolTip();

       labelToolTip.Content =
    "Your Label Content";

    as FrameworkElement, labelToolTip);


    Let me know how this works for you.
