Tooltips on read only properties

Hi all,

I've implemented error support for our PropertyGrid by binding an error template to the IDataErrorInfo in the standard "red box" type validation method, this all works fine and when a property fails validation we see the red outline to the property and get the error message to appear as a tooltip when we mouse over the property editor. However, if the property is flagged as read only and is greyed out we can still get the red border to show but we don't get any tooltip. Can we show tooltips on read only properties and if so any pointers as to where I need to look to get this working?

Thanks

Hi Rick,

The controls used to present "read-only" properties generally have IsEnabled set to false. You can set ToolTipSerivce.ShowOnDisabled to true on the underlying controls to have it show the tooltips in that case.

Thanks, set it as a style extension to the Control base type which worked just fine:

<Style x:Key="controlStyle" TargetType="{x:Type Control}">
    <Setter Property="ToolTipService.ShowOnDisabled" Value="true"/>
</Stryle
