How to turn off QuickInfo for collapsed text

SyntaxEditor for Windows Forms Forum

We provide an option for the user to decide whether they want to see QuickInfo tips.

In OnSyntaxEditorViewMouseHover() I simply exit if the option is False.

This works fine for my own QuickInfo tips but the automatic tips that are displayed when hovering over collapsed text still display.

I tried NOT calling the base function and setting e.Cancel = True but it still displays the tips.

Is there a property I can set to switch off that functionality?

Thanks

Hi Mike,

I don't believe there is an option but you can handle ViewMouseHover and set e.ToolTipText = null to prevent it.

Thanks.

I had assumed that since setting e.Cancel didn't prevent the tooltip you must not be not calling this function.

Why doesn't setting e.Cancel work to cancel the event?

Good point, we'll make e.Cancel = true also prevent it for the next maintenance release.
