Hi,

is there way to show the screent tip on disabled buttons used in a context menu?

I tried

ToolTipService.SetShowOnDisabled(btn, true);

but that doesn't work.

Here is my code:

var contextMenu = new ActiProContextMenu();
var menu = new ActiProMenu();
contextMenu.Items.Add(menu);

var btn = new ActiProButton(PhxCommands.CAFromSelection);
btn.IsEnabled = false; 
menu.Items.Add(btn);
ScreenTipService.SetScreenTipIsEnabled(btn, true);
ToolTipService.SetShowOnDisabled(btn, true);  

  
 

Any ideas?

Hi Wilfried,

Sorry but I believe we have code that prevents screentips from showing at all when the menu item is on a context menu, since screentips aren't generally shown in that scenario.

Hi Support,

sorry for my late reply. But you're wrong. Screentips are also shown in context menu. The thing is, that the user want to see screen tips even on disabled items.

Hi Wilfried,

I did some more testing and found there was a case where it was showing screen tips on context menu items even though it shouldn't have been since we have code to prevent screen tips for context menu items.  We've fixed the bug for the next maintenance release.

But we also added a new static ScreenTipService.AllowScreenTipsOnContextMenus property that you'll be able to set to true to allow screen tips in context menus.

Thanks for doing! Does this mean we have screentips even on disabled menu items? This would be the answer for the opening request.

Hi Wilfried,

Yes, by default there will be no screentips on context menu items.  If you enable that option then it will allow them on both enabled and disabled context menu items.
