BarItem.Hint Property

Gets or sets the data representing the description of the bar item's hint. This is a dependency property.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.Bars
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.Core.v18.2.dll

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: Object
The data representing the description of the bar item's hint.

Expanded Remarks

Bar items support regular hints and SuperTips. A SuperTip, if specified, has a higher priority than a regular hint.

A regular hint displays a BarItem's caption (Content), glyph (Glyph), and the Hint object. If the Hint property is not specified, a regular hint is not displayed.

A SuperTip is an expandable tooltip that supports multiple regions. Tooltip regions are arranged one under another, and each can display a specific object and graphics. To specify a SuperTip for an item, use the SuperTip property.

The BarManager.ShowScreenTips and ShowScreenTip properties allow you to disable hints/SuperTips.
