Hi,

May I know how can I create Tooltips for each item in Thumbnail List View?

Or at least some tooltips that will show while I point to the Thunbnail (It can be the same tooltips for all item)

Hello,

Yes, of course it is possible. Here is code snippet which shows display name of the thumbnail item in a tool tip. Variable _tl is ThumbnailListView control instance, _toolTip is a System.Windows.Forms.ToolTip instance.

Somewhere in form initialization:
Code:
. . .
_tl.MouseMove += new MouseEventHandler(_tl_MouseMove);
. . .


Mouse move handler and tool tip update method:
Code:
void _tl_MouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
	UpdateToolTip();
}

private void UpdateToolTip()
{
	int index = _tl.HitTest(_tl.PointToClient(Control.MousePosition));
	if (index != -1)
	{
		string toolTipText = _tl.Items[index].GetText(
			ThumbnailListItem.TextInfoIdDisplayName);
		if (_toolTip.GetToolTip(_tl) != toolTipText)
			_toolTip.SetToolTip(_tl, toolTipText);
	}
	else
	{
		_toolTip.RemoveAll();
	}
}
