Bind Data to Tooltip

Post by Jg Boekhof » Wed, 15 Mar 2006 22:15:03

how can I create a DataBinding that sets a property of a control extension
like Tooltip?
E.g. I have a Form with a Button and a Tooltip on it. How can I set the
tooltip for the button via DataBinding?

Hi jboekhoff,

Thanks for your post!

The current question is why you want to do databinding with button and
ToolTip? .Net winform databinding is used to keep the synchronization
between .Net datasource and Winform GUI controls, it is not used to
associate 2 Winform controls together.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks

Bind Data to Tooltip

Well it only was an example. I would like to create an own control extension
(like Tooltip). A Component that will extend each control on a form with
several properties. I would like to bind some of these properties to a data
source. My idea was, if I would know how to bind data to the tooltip of a
certain control, I could use the same mechanism to bind data to my own
extended properties.

With kind regards,
