Property Value

Type: System.String
The text to display for the thumbnail button tooltip. The default is an empty string.

You can add an image to a thumbnail button, but no property exists for setting text on the thumbnail button face. However, you can set the Description property to add descriptive text that is displayed in a tooltip when the mouse pointer moves over the thumbnail button.

The following example shows how to create a ThumbButtonInfo in markup. The ThumbButtonInfo is bound to the MediaCommands.Stop command. The tooltip descriptive text is Stop. This example is part of a larger example provided for the TaskbarItemInfo class.

    CommandTarget="{Binding ElementName=btnStop}"
    ImageSource="{StaticResource ResourceKey=StopImage}"/>
