TabControl.ShowToolTips Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether a tab's ToolTip is shown when the mouse passes over the tab.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public bool ShowToolTips { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if ToolTips are shown for the tabs that have them; otherwise, false. The default is false.

To create a ToolTip for a tab, set the ToolTipText property of the TabPage.

The following code example creates a TabControl with two TabPage objects. For tab page ToolTips to display, the ShowToolTips property must equal to true, as in this example. The ToolTipText property is used to assign string values to the ToolTips.

Use the System.Drawing and System.Windows.Forms namespaces for this example.


using System.Drawing;
using System.Windows.Forms;

public class Form1 : Form
{
    private TabControl tabControl1;
    private TabPage tabPage1;
    private TabPage tabPage2;

    private void MyTabs()
    {
        this.tabControl1 = new TabControl();
        this.tabPage1 = new TabPage();
        this.tabPage2 = new TabPage();

        this.tabControl1.Controls.AddRange(new Control[] {
            this.tabPage1,
            this.tabPage2});
        this.tabControl1.Location = new Point(35, 25);
        this.tabControl1.Size = new Size(220, 220);

        // Shows ToolTipText when the mouse passes over tabs.
        this.tabControl1.ShowToolTips = true;

        // Assigns string values to ToolTipText.
        this.tabPage1.ToolTipText = "myTabPage1";
        this.tabPage2.ToolTipText = "myTabPage2";

        this.Size = new Size(300, 300);
        this.Controls.AddRange(new Control[] {
            this.tabControl1});
    }

    public Form1()
    {
        MyTabs();
    }

    static void Main() 
    {
        Application.Run(new Form1());
    }
}
