This section provides an overview of the properties supported by all ToolTipsFactory tooltip components. The properties are listed in alphabetical order. To navigate to the reference page of a specific property, just click on the icon in the left column:
A boolean read-only property which indicates if the tooltip component is currently displaying a tooltip. A new value assigned to this property will automatically change the other timing-properties accordingly, based on fix rules. defines the time in milliseconds the tooltip will remain visible. This property lets you define the border-type for the tooltips displayed by the component. Defines the Color for solid tooltip borders. This Color-collection holds all the colors used to paint a border with color-gradients. A value from 0 through 1 that specifies the center of the gradient. This value is only significant for layouts where Border=LinearGradient and BorderGradientShape <> GradientShape.Linear. defines how many times the gradient (from StartColor to EndColor) will be repeated in the border drawing. This value is only significant for layouts where Border=LinearGradient. specifies the Drawing2D.LinearGradientMode to be used to draw the tooltip border. This value is only significant for layouts where Border=LinearGradient. creates a gradient falloff based on the shape selected from a predefined list of shapes. This value is only significant for layouts where Border=LinearGradient. This property holds the foreground (or line) color for the hatch-pattern assigned to BorderHatchStyle. This value is only significant for layouts where Border=Hatch. defines the hatch-pattern used to paint the tooltip-border. This value is only significant for layouts where Border=Hatch. holds the texture used to paint the tooltip-border. The texture can be any kind of Image supported by .NET. This value is only significant for layouts where Border is set to one of the Texture-related styles and BorderWidth > 1. specifies the width of the tooltip-border in pixels. defines the maximum-width of the tooltip. controls into which area of the screen the tooltips should be confined. is a boolean flag to define whether the tooltip should follow the mouse pointer while it is moving over the control for which the tooltip is shown, or if it stays motionless at the position where it pop's up. determines the latency-time (in milliseconds) before the tooltip will be displayed for a control. (This is the time between the pointer entering the client-area of a control and the appearance of the tooltip.) Defines whether the tooltip should remain visible as long as the mouse is moving over the control or if it should be hidden as soon as the period defined in AutoPopDelay is over. (This property is not used in this release of the ToolTipsFactory!) defines the transparency of the whole tooltip (0=opaque ... 100=invisible).
