Showing intellisense-like tooltips in DropDown cells part of GridControls

I have a GridControl and one of the cells has DropDownStyle of GridDropDownStyle.AutoComplete.
In order to help the user decide which option to take I would like to show intellisense-like tooltips next to the option currently selected. It is too much information to have in the DropDown itself. Is it possible to do so?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Jornei,

The attached sample shows how to add the tooltip to the dropdown control in a grid and also how to display the different text in a tooltip object. Below is a code snippet for GridListControl

//form load....
GridDropDownGridListControlCellRenderer cr = this.gridControl1.CellRenderers["GridListControl"] as GridDropDownGridListControlCellRenderer;
cr.ListControlPart.Grid.PrepareViewStyleInfo +=new GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventHandler(Grid_PrepareViewStyleInfo);

private void Grid_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e)
GridControl grid = sender as GridControl;
this.toolTip1.SetToolTip( grid,e.Style.Text);

Here is a sample.

Best Regards,
