StaysOpen Property

ToolTip.StaysOpen Property


Gets or sets a value that indicates whether an open ToolTip remains open until the user clicks the mouse when the mouse is not over the ToolTip.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public bool StaysOpen { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the ToolTip stays open until it is closed by the user clicking the mouse button outside the ToolTip; otherwise, false. The default is true.

Exception Condition

Occurs when StaysOpen is set to false when a tooltip is not open.

A value of false for the StaysOpen property is not supported for a ToolTip when it is not open. To create a tooltip that stays open until the mouse button is pressed when it is outside the tooltip, you must set both the StaysOpen property and the IsOpen property to true. If StaysOpen is set to false when the tooltip is not open, a NotSupportedException occurs.
