    In his latest 10 minute video tutorial, Victor Gaudioso demonstrates how to put the slider position in the slider tooltip.

    Recently I was asked to make a ToolTip that now only followed the Thumb of the Slider but also showed the value of what the slider was (see image above).  I thought about this and I came up with a pretty quick solution.  There may be other ways to do it but watch the short 1o minute video to see how I did it.

  • Using Element to Element Binding for ToolTips in Silverlight 3

    Dan Wahlin posted about a new feature provided by Silverlight 3 which is called “element to element” binding and allows one element to bind to another element’s property.

    A lot of the samples I see for this new technology tend to focus on using slider controls but I just don’t have a need for sliders most of the time (although it certainly depends upon what type of application you’re building).  Here’s a simple yet effective way to leverage element to element binding for tooltips.  I currently have a ComboBox control with a data template and want to show a description of the selected item as the user mouses over the control.  With Silverlight 2 you’d have to write code since there wouldn’t be a way for the tooltip service to bind to the selected item declaratively.
