Hi, is there any way to show tooltip when there is ellipses text in GridControl. I have set the GridBaseStyle Trimming property to “EllipsisCharacter”. Please guide me how can I enable tooltip option. I will be thankful to you.

Hi Ali,

You can set the Style.CellTipText for the particular column to show the tooltip in a grid. You can do this in QueryCellInfo.

private void grid_QueryCellInfo(object sender, GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)
if(e.RowIndex > 0 && e.ColIndex == 3)
e.Style.CellTipText = e.Style.FormattedText;
//maybe .Text or some other string...

Best regards,
