What is the easiest way to include a tooltip in the gridView column?
For example in this column
<asp:BoundField DataField="short_comment" HeaderText="Comments" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="short_comment"/>
I would like to have something like
<asp:BoundField DataField="short_comment" ToolTipDataField="longer_comment"/>
ToolTipDataFielddoes not exist, but what would be the easiest way to achieve that functionality?
Replaced with template
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Comments" SortExpression="short_comment"> <ItemTemplate> <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("short_comment") %>' ToolTip ='<%# Bind("longer_comment") %>'></asp:Label> </ItemTemplate> </asp:TemplateField>
e.Row.Cells.ToolTip = e.Row.Cells.Text;
i did something like that it seems worked. What i do is to show the content of cell as a tool tip. You can put some longer comments here.
I handled situtation from codebehind. No sure it is best solution.
hope it helps.
