ToolTip does not appear

Jun 1, 2011 at 10:34 PM

At first, I was certain my inexperience was the cause.  But then I went back to the sourcegrid demos and discovered that demo #26 does not seem to work either.  Is it perhaps because I am using c# express 2010?  Or maybe it does not pop in the 4.0 framework?  My code seems to be exactly as described in the documentation (I am no where near being an expert coder!):

SourceGrid.Cells.Controllers.ToolTipText toolTipController = new SourceGrid.Cells.Controllers.ToolTipText();
toolTipController.ToolTipTitle = "My Tool Tip";
toolTipController.ToolTipIcon = ToolTipIcon.Info;
toolTipController.BackColor = Color.White;
toolTipController.ForeColor = Color.Black;
toolTipController.IsBalloon = true;
grid1[RowOffset, ColumnOffset].ToolTipText = "Tool Tip, blah, blah, blah";
grid1[RowOffset, ColumnOffset].AddController(toolTipController);

I reviewed the code (both mine and the demo code and can easily see in debug where the text is appearing in the tooltip text area.  it just does not seem to appear on the grid.  I also searched through the discussions and bug reports looking for anyone explaining a similar issue.  I didn't see anything like this mentioned - so, it is most likely my problem :-)

Welcome any suggestions or ideas!
