The current ToolTip text.

This property initially contains the value of the DataGridViewCell.ToolTipText property if it has been set for a cell.

The following code example sets the ToolTipText property depending on which cell the cursor is over. In this example, the ToolTipText is filled with information from hidden columns in the DataGridView.

void dataGridView1_CellToolTipTextNeeded(object sender,
    DataGridViewCellToolTipTextNeededEventArgs e)
{
    string newLine = Environment.NewLine;
    if (e.RowIndex > -1)
    {
        DataGridViewRow dataGridViewRow1 = dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex];

        // Add the employee's ID to the ToolTipText.
        e.ToolTipText = String.Format("EmployeeID {0}:{1}",
            dataGridViewRow1.Cells["EmployeeID"].Value, newLine);

        // Add the employee's name to the ToolTipText.
        e.ToolTipText += String.Format("{0} {1} {2}{3}",
            dataGridViewRow1.Cells["TitleOfCourtesy"].Value.ToString(),
            dataGridViewRow1.Cells["FirstName"].Value.ToString(),
            dataGridViewRow1.Cells["LastName"].Value.ToString(),
            newLine);

        // Add the employee's title to the ToolTipText.
        e.ToolTipText += String.Format("{0}{1}{2}",
            dataGridViewRow1.Cells["Title"].Value.ToString(),
            newLine, newLine);

        // Add the employee's contact information to the ToolTipText.
        e.ToolTipText += String.Format("{0}{1}{2}, ",
            dataGridViewRow1.Cells["Address"].Value.ToString(), newLine,
            dataGridViewRow1.Cells["City"].Value.ToString());
        if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(
            dataGridViewRow1.Cells["Region"].Value.ToString()))
        {
            e.ToolTipText += String.Format("{0}, ",
                dataGridViewRow1.Cells["Region"].Value.ToString());
        }
        e.ToolTipText += String.Format("{0}, {1}{2}{3} EXT:{4}{5}{6}",
            dataGridViewRow1.Cells["Country"].Value.ToString(),
            dataGridViewRow1.Cells["PostalCode"].Value.ToString(),
            newLine, dataGridViewRow1.Cells["HomePhone"].Value.ToString(),
            dataGridViewRow1.Cells["Extension"].Value.ToString(),
            newLine, newLine);

        // Add employee information to the ToolTipText.
        DateTime HireDate =
            (DateTime)dataGridViewRow1.Cells["HireDate"].Value;
        e.ToolTipText +=
            String.Format("Employee since: {0}/{1}/{2}{3}Manager: {4}",
            HireDate.Month.ToString(), HireDate.Day.ToString(),
            HireDate.Year.ToString(), newLine,
            dataGridViewRow1.Cells["Manager"].Value.ToString());
    }
