Ribbon Button tooltip shows two tooltips when VariantSize="Small"

Ribbon for WPF Forum

Platform: .NET 4.5
Environment: Windows 7 (64-bit)

I put a ribbon button inside a Windows Toolbar like below

<ToolBar DockPanel.Dock="Top">
<ribbon:Button Label="Save" VariantSize="Small" ToolTip="This should only be the Tooltip">
<BitmapImage UriSource=".\Resources\Images\16\Save_16x16.png" />


If you hover it, after around 1-2sec, you will see two tooltips on top of one another. One is the assigned Tooltip and the other is the Label value.

Hi Clint,

Ribbon buttons are all made to work with screen tips.  You shouldn't use the ToolTip property with ribbon controls.  Instead, you should use the various ScreenTip* properties on ribbon controls.

If you are just making a standard ToolBar though, I would recommend using regular buttons.  If you use our Themes product and have native control theming active, they will render similar to ribbon buttons.

The latest build of this product (v22.1.4) was released 3 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
