If you want to add a tooltip to a control you must first check if it allows the ToolTipService namespace. If yes, you can add the tooltip the following way:


<Button x:Name="MyButton" Content="Hello!" Width="50" Height="30">
        <TextBlock x:Name="ToolTip" Text="Click me!"></TextBlock>


ToolTipService.SetToolTip( MyButton, new TextBlock() { Text = "Click me!" } );

You can also use another control instead of TextBlock, for example Image control or Rectangle control.

That's it!

    I was asked to add this to my client's app and I wasn't sure if this was a Silverlight control...  Thanks for the post!
