Asked On February 7, 2019 09:03 AM UTC

the GridDataControl shows ValueMember-Value("UID") instead of  the DisplayMember-Value("Value") in the ToolTip in a GridDataColumnStyle with CellTypeEnum="ComboBox".
How can I achive, that the DisplayMember-Value will be shown?

Hi Bernhard, 

Thanks for using Syncfusion product. 

You can achieve your desired behavior by setting the TooTip text as the display text using QueryCellInfo event. 

dataGrid.Model.QueryCellInfo += Model_QueryCellInfo; 
private void Model_QueryCellInfo(object sender, GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e) 
    var identity = ((GridDataStyleInfo) e.Style).CellIdentity; 
    if (identity?.Column == null) 
    if (identity.TableCellType == GridDataTableCellType.RecordCell) 
        e.Style.ShowTooltip = true; // If we set true alone like this by default the tooltip will show the cell values. 
        if (e.Style.CellType == "ComboBox") 
            e.Style.ToolTip = e.Style.Text; // Set the tooltip value as Text so that Display Member's string will be shown in tooltip.
