i'm using syncfusion 3.3 bar item:
in VS 2003.
i use the baritem in context menu, and the tooltip is NOT shown.
for example : baritem1.tootip = "111";
i saw that in more advanced versions you have the property 'showTooltip' (i don't have it).
how can i display the tooltip ?

Hi Noa,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

The tooltips are displayed for the BarItems that are directly placed on the Bar itself. BarItems in a dropdown menu and PopupMenu do not display tooltips and this is done by design intent. This is how the VS,NET menus behave too. Our XPMenus framework is closely modeled on the VS.NET menus and we have maintained similar behavior for consistency purposes. So the tooltips will not get display in latest version also.

Please let me know if any concerns.

Hi Noa,

With our latest version it is possible to set tooltips to baritem in ContextMenu using SuperTooltip component. Please refer the below sample that illustrates this:


Please let me know if any concerns.
