The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Gets or sets the length of time before a tooltip opens.

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

See GetInitialShowDelay, SetInitialShowDelay

Property Value

Type: System.Int32

An integer value that represents the display delay time in milliseconds. The default value is MouseHoverTime in milliseconds.

Exception Condition
ArgumentException

The value of the InitialShowDelay property is less than zero (0).

Typically, when a user moves the mouse pointer over an object that has a tooltip, there is a delay before the tooltip is displayed. This delay is equal to the value of the InitialShowDelay property. However, after a tooltip is displayed there is a period of time during which another tooltip can be displayed without waiting for the InitialShowDelay time to pass. You specify this time period by using the BetweenShowDelay property. When the user moves the mouse within this time period from one element that has a visible tooltip to another element that has a tooltip, the value of the InitialShowDelay property for the second tooltip is not applied and the second tooltip appears immediately.

For information about how to get or set this property in code, see the GetInitialShowDelay and SetInitialShowDelay methods.
