How to create ScreenTip for the Ribbon items in Ribbon control?

ScreenTip is an enhanced ToolTip and it is used to show a popup window when the mouse cursor is hovered over RibbonItem. The popup is used to provide details of the RibbonItem’s function. The difference between ToolTip and ScreenTip is that, ToolTip hosts controls to show a small popup window, whereas ScreenTip includes predefined properties. With these predefined properties, you can create ScreenTip easily.

ScreenTip has four properties.

  1. Description - Specifies the description of the ScreenTip.
  2. Image - Specifies the image of the ScreenTip.
  3. Content - Specifies the content of the ScreenTip.
  4. HelpText - Specifies the HelpText of the ScreenTip.
