I have this defined to let each cell display it's value in a tooltip:
<Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewCell">
   <Setter Property="ToolTip" Value="{Binding Value,RelativeSource={RelativeSource Mode=Self}}" />
</Style>

It works, but for cells that have lots of content, it doesn't wrap the text. So I defined this ToolTipTemplate for the column that has lots of text:

<DataTemplate x:Key="GridViewToolTipTemplate">
   <TextBlock Text="{Binding Description, Converter={StaticResource LineBreaksConverter}}" TextWrapping="Wrap" MaxWidth="400" />
</DataTemplate>

The DataMemberBinding has the same expression as the Text of the Textblock, this just allows the text to wrap. It works well, but...

I'd like to reuse this template for another column, rather than having to define this template again. I'm just not sure what to bind the Text property to so that it works for whatever column I use it with.

Hi,

You would better define a style that targets the 'ToolTip' type.

<Style TargetType="ToolTip">
              <Setter Property="ContentTemplate">
                  <Setter.Value>
                      <DataTemplate>
                          <StackPanel>
                              <TextBlock Text="{Binding}"
                       TextWrapping='Wrap' />
                          </StackPanel>
                      </DataTemplate>
                  </Setter.Value>
              </Setter>
</Style>

That way the text on all the ToolTips will be wrapped.

Kind regards,

Hi!

I was trying to apply the same style with RadGridView cell tooltip but didn't work.

 

Could you please help in this regard?

 

Kind regards,

I have prepared a sample project, that might be a possible solution for your question. The style is the same as the one code snippet provided by my colleague, so could you give this project a try?

Thanks. I didn't think of changing the content template.
