Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
type DataGridViewCellToolTipTextNeededEventHandler = delegate of sender:Object * e:DataGridViewCellToolTipTextNeededEventArgs -> unit
- Type: System.Object
The source of the event.
- Type: System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellToolTipTextNeededEventArgs
A DataGridViewCellToolTipTextNeededEventArgs that contains the event data.
When you handle the CellToolTipTextNeeded event, the ToolTip text you specify in the handler is shown whenever the mouse pointer is over a cell and the control ShowCellToolTips property value is true. The CellToolTipTextNeeded event is useful when you want to display ToolTips determined by the current state or value of a cell.
You can use the DataGridViewCellEventArgs.ColumnIndex and RowIndex properties to determine the state or value of a cell, and use this information to set the ToolTipText property. This property is initialized with the value of the cell ToolTipText property, which the event value overrides.
Handle the CellToolTipTextNeeded event when working with large amounts of data to avoid the performance penalties of setting the cell ToolTipText value for multiple cells. For more information, see Best Practices for Scaling the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.
For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.
When you create a delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event-handler delegates, see Events and Delegates.
