WinForms Tooltip and Label Key Features

Display Super-Rich, Formatted Content

Display rich and formatted content in tooltips, labels and error messages in your application using HTML. SuperTooltip components support the following HTML items:

  • Nested <div> elements
  • Mixed fonts and text colors using <span> tags
  • Preformatted text using <pre> tags
  • Paragraph alignment
  • Formatted and nested tables with spanning rows and columns
  • Nested, bulleted, and numbered lists
  • Images loaded from the application resources
  • Plain text and content formatted from cascading style sheets

Create Super-Stylized Tooltips

Create professional-looking, stylized tooltips, with solid color backgrounds, or choose from four other available background gradients. You can even add shadows and create semi-transparent tooltips. Further, customize the look of your tooltip with rounded corners and a call-out shape (balloon) attached to the origin position.

Provide Super Error Messaging

The SuperErrorProvider component is similar to the standard ErrorProvider component, except that it enables you to display rich error information using HTML instead of plain text. For example, you can use icons and bold red titles for the error tooltips, making messages more clear to the user. You can also display error messages when the user hovers or clicks on the error images.

Additional Features

Manage Tooltip Position

You can manage the position, programmatically display, delay, and pin tooltips to remain visible even when they lose focus.

Display Hyperlinks within Text

Use the SuperLabel control to display blocks of rich content — encoded as HTML — in your Windows Forms applications. Include hyperlinks which can navigate within your application or take the user online.

Faster and Browser Independent

SuperTooltip for WinForms uses its own lightweight HTML parser and renderer completely written in C#, which is much faster than displaying HTML in a web view control and comes with none of the security concerns.
