Hi Rajaraman, If this is a GridControl, you can just set this.gridControl1[0,2].CellTipText = "tip"; If this is a GriddataBoundGrid, then you would have to handle PrepareViewStyleInfo: private void gridDataBoundGrid1_PrepareViewStyleInfo(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridPrepareViewStyleInfoEventArgs e) { if(e.RowIndex == 0 && e.ColIndex == 2) e.Style.CellTipText = "tip"; } Hope that helps. Regards, Stephen.

You cannot set cell specific properties (other than Text or CellValue) in a GridDataBoundGrid. The reason is that the the only cell specific storage available is what is in the data source (which is why you can change the Text or CellValue). Since excelcomments are on a cell by cell basis, you need to do more work for them. One way to handle this problem is shown in this sample. It adds a hashtable to hold the styles for cells that an excelcomment. The key in this example is just the row and column numbers, which works OK as long as you do not sort the table of move teh columns. If you want to sort the table, then the row contribution to the key should be the unique ID value. And to allow moving columns, you could use the MappingName of teh column for the column contribution to the key. Then Model.SaveCellInfo is handled to save to the hashtable the styles of any cells that you add comments to. Model.QueryCellInfo is handled to provide the save styles from the HashTable as needed.

Hi Jay Thanks it is working fine, i understand the sorting problem also. In the sample i have some doubts But my question is, say when i bind the grid to datasource, i just want to specify those cells requires cell comments in querycellinfo event, Can I ? Because after setting the datasource, i have to loop throguh the datasource and set these lines for the required lines right? style = New ExcelTipDLL.GridExcelTipStyleProperties(GridDataBoundGrid1(1, 3)) style.ExcelTipText = "Comment for cell 1,3." can we avoid this and can be done at querycell info event? Regards Rajaraman

I don't know the details of the sample (and Clay is on vacation ...) but there should be no problem to provide the information you want to display in QueryCellInfo or PrepareViewStyleInfo. The Hashtable and/also looping though cells is only needed if you want to support to let the user modify the cell comments. Stefan

To do this replace the following two event handlers in the previous sample posted by Jay: Private Sub grid_QueryCellInfo(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs) If e.RowIndex > 0 And e.ColIndex = 2 Then Dim style As ExcelTipDLL.GridExcelTipStyleProperties = New ExcelTipDLL.GridExcelTipStyleProperties(e.Style) style.ExcelTipText = "Large Large Comment for cells in column 2." End If End Sub 'grid_QueryCellInfo Private Sub grid_SaveCellInfo(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridSaveCellInfoEventArgs) ' Not needed. End Sub Stefan
