Displaying ToolTips for Pages

This topic demonstrates how to create custom ToolTips for the pages of your C1MultiPage control. When the ToolTip property is set to a string, users will be able to see a brief description of the page by hovering over it with their cursor. In this topic, you create a ToolTip in Design view, in Source view, and in code.

Note: Since this feature is attached to the C1PageView, it doesn't work if you set the ContentUrl property. 

Adding a ToolTip in Design View

 To add a ToolTip, follow these steps:

1.   Click the C1MultiPage's smart tag () to open the C1MultiPage Tasks menu and select MultiPage Designer.

The C1MultiPage Designer Form appears.

2.   Use the Add Child Item button  to add a page to your C1MultiPage.

3.   In treeview, select C1PageView1 to reveal its list of properties. 

4.   Locate the ToolTip property and type "Page 1" into its text box.




5.   Press OK to close the C1MultiPageDesigner Form and then run the project.

Adding a ToolTip through Source View

To add a ToolTip in code, add ToolTip="Page 1" to the <cc1:C1PageView> tags.  Your HTML will resemble the following:


   <cc1:C1PageView ID="C1PageView1" runat="server" ToolTip="Page 1">

Adding a ToolTip in Code

To add a ToolTip in code, follow these steps:

1.   Import the following namespaces into your project:

      Visual Basic

Imports C1.Web.UI.Controls.C1MultiPage


using C1.Web.UI.Controls.C1MultiPage;

2.   Create the ToolTip by adding the following code to the Page_Load event:

      Visual Basic

C1PageView1.ToolTip = "Page 1"


C1PageView1.ToolTip = "Page 1";

3.   Run the project.
