Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl |

You can use the System.Windows.Forms.Tooltip class to add tips that vary from cell to cell in an Essential Grid and it is performed using a MouseMove event handler. As you move to a different cell, you can turn off the current tip when it is visible, and reset it with your new text depending upon the current cell. The following code example illustrates how to achieve this.
