For the life of me, I simply can't find anywhere to set a tooltip on a cell? This framework is starting to become less and less intuitive?

I simply want to apply a tooltip to the cell that displays 'DN' in the below; the tooltip should show the full value of 'DN'. How do I go about that?

- rest omitted-

GroupDropAreaText="Drag columns here" 
    ReCreateChildControls="True" DataSourceCachingMode="Session">
    <TableDescriptor AllowColumnResize="true" AllowFilter="true" AllowEdit="False" AllowNew="False">
            <syncfusion:GridColumnDescriptor AllowSort="true" MappingName="AccountName" HeaderText="Account Name">
                <GroupByOptions AllowExpressionFilter="False" ShowFilterStatusMessage="False" FilterStatusBarWidth="450"></GroupByOptions>
            <syncfusion:GridColumnDescriptor AllowSort="true" MappingName="DN" HeaderText="Full DN" Width="230">
                <GroupByOptions AllowExpressionFilter="False" ShowFilterStatusMessage="False" FilterStatusBarWidth="450"></GroupByOptions>

Hi Claus,


Thanks for using Syncfusion products.


Your requirement of setting tooltip for a particular column can be achieved by handling QueryCellStyleInfo event. Please refer to the code snippet below.




void GridGroupingControl1_QueryCellStyleInfo(object sender, GridTableCellStyleInfoEventArgs e)


            if (e.TableCellIdentity.TableCellType == GridTableCellType.RecordFieldCell || e.TableCellIdentity.TableCellType==GridTableCellType.AlternateRecordFieldCell )


                if (e.TableCellIdentity.Column.Name == "Name")


                e.Style.CellTipText = e.Style.CellValue.ToString();
