If both the ListViewItem and its containing ListView have ToolTips set, only the ToolTip for the ListViewItem will be shown.

The following code " demonstrates how to use the ListView.ShowItemToolTips and ToolTipText properties. To run this ", paste the code into a Windows Form and call InitializeItemsWithToolTips from the form's constructor or Load event-handling method.


// Declare the ListView.
private ListView ListViewWithToolTips;
private void InitializeItemsWithToolTips()
{

    // Construct and set the View property of the ListView.
    ListViewWithToolTips = new ListView();
    ListViewWithToolTips.Width = 200;
    ListViewWithToolTips.View = View.List;

    // Show item tooltips.
    ListViewWithToolTips.ShowItemToolTips = true;
    
    // Create items with a tooltip.
    ListViewItem item1WithToolTip = new ListViewItem("Item with a tooltip");
    item1WithToolTip.ToolTipText = "This is the item tooltip.";
    ListViewItem item2WithToolTip = new ListViewItem("Second item with a tooltip");
    item2WithToolTip.ToolTipText = "A different tooltip for this item.";

    // Create an item without a tooltip.
    ListViewItem itemWithoutToolTip = new ListViewItem("Item without tooltip.");

    // Add the items to the ListView.
    ListViewWithToolTips.Items.AddRange(new ListViewItem[]{item1WithToolTip, 
        item2WithToolTip, itemWithoutToolTip} );

    // Add the ListView to the form.
    this.Controls.Add(ListViewWithToolTips);
    this.Controls.Add(button1);
}
