Metadata properties set to true


The PlacementRectangle property specifies a Rect structure relative to which the ToolTip control is positioned when it opens. If PlacementTarget is not null, the Rect structure is defined relative to the PlacementTarget object. Otherwise, the specified Rect structure is defined relative to the upper-left corner of the screen.

If the Placement property is set to Mouse, the tooltip is displayed relative to the location of the mouse, and the value of the PlacementRectangle property has no effect.

This property is an attached property. For information about how to get or set the value of this property in code, see the GetPlacementRectangle and SetPlacementRectangle methods.

PlacementRectangle behaves similarly to the Popup.PlacementRectangle property. For more information, see Popup Placement Behavior.
