How to set toolTips for the nodes in the WinForms TreeViewAdv control?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: TreeViewAdv |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: February 5, 2020


The user can set ToolTips for individual nodes using the TreeNodeAdv.HelpText property. This can be set using the TreeViewAdv Node Collection Editor.Here is a code sample that demonstrates how to programmatically set ToolTips for dynamically created nodes:


private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
   for (int i=0;i<30;i++)
      //create new TreeNodeAdv
      TreeNodeAdv newNode = new TreeNodeAdv("node"+i.ToString());
      //set it's Tooltip using the HelpText
      newNode.HelpText = newNode.Text;
      //add node to TreeViewAdv control


Private Sub button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
   For i As Integer = 0 To 29
       'create new TreeNodeAdv
       Dim newNode As TreeNodeAdv = New TreeNodeAdv("node" & i.ToString())
       'set it's Tooltip using the HelpText
       newNode.HelpText = newNode.Text
       'add node to TreeViewAdv control
   Next i
End Sub
