Handle the PrepareViewStyleInfo the value of e.RowIndex.

hi , Your reply is unclear to me. I have gone searched through your KB, Forums and samples and found only tool tip texts for a cell. The requirement is for current row. Can you explain in more detail? regards, Catinat

hi Heres the code which I think will throw up more insight into my problem, In my mouse hover event I have written this code : Record record = this.GroupingGrid.SyncfusionGridControl.Table.CurrentRecord; string col1 = Convert.ToString(record.GetValue("COL1")); string col2 = Convert.ToString(record.GetValue("COL2")); string toolTipText = col1 + col2; How to set this toolTiptext to the current row?

1) Subscribe to the grid.PrepareViewStyleInfo event. 2) In your handler, set the e.Style.CellTipText property based on e.RowIndex.
private void gridDataBoundGrid1_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
	if(e.ColIndex > 0 && e.RowIndex > 0)
		e.Style .CellTipText = string.Format("Tip for row {0}. Cell value={1}", e.RowIndex, this.gridDataBoundGrid1[e.RowIndex, e.ColIndex].CellValue);

You did not mention you were using a GridGroupingControl. Instead of PrepareViewStyleInfo, in a GridGroupingControl, you should use the QueryCellStyleInfo event to set the tip.
private void gridGroupingControl1_QueryCellStyleInfo(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.Grouping.GridTableCellStyleInfoEventArgs e)
	if(e.TableCellIdentity.TableCellType == GridTableCellType.AlternateRecordFieldCell
		|| e.TableCellIdentity.TableCellType == GridTableCellType.RecordFieldCell)
		GridRecordRow rec = e.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement as GridRecordRow;
		if(rec.ParentRecord != null)
			e.Style.CellTipText = rec.ParentRecord.GetValue("Col1") + "  " + rec.ParentRecord.GetValue("Col2");

hi, I havent yet tried what you said. I feel it may not work. Will the following conditions prevent the above solution from working? Its grouping grid. I dont know the index of cols, only names. These cols are not visible cols.

The code I posted for QueryCellStyleInfo above was copied it from a working sample. Try it. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/GDBG_ToolTip_44ab7f50.zip
