We are using Grid Grouping Control.

The 'Column Headers' Should Contain the abbreviated column name. The full column name should be displayed as a 'tool tip' when the user place their pointer over the column Header.

Please resolve the problem ASAP.

Hi Tannearu,

To show the Abbreviated Header cell tooltip text in a grid, you must set the ExtendedText property of the GridTextExtender. Andalso you need to handle the TableControl.MouseMove event to show the Tooltip. You can copy the modified ToolTipExtGrid.GridTextExtender class and add to your application. Please refer to the attached sample for implementation.

m_oGridTextExtender = new ToolTipExtGrid.GridTextExtender(this);
//Enable the ToolTip.
m_oGridTextExtender.ShowHeaderToolTip = true;

for(int i = 0;i < 5;i++)
table.Add(i + 1,"Your Abbreviated ColumnName here..");
//you must the set the ExtendedHeaderText for displaying the Abbreviated column name.
m_oGridTextExtender.ExtendedHeaderText = table;

//Subscribe the MouseMove event to show the tooltip.
this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.MouseMove +=new MouseEventHandler(TableControl_MouseMove);

private void TableControl_MouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
m_oGridTextExtender.Show( (sender as GridTableControl) , new Point(e.X, e.Y));

Here is a sample.

Best Regards,
