Dynamic tooltips inside datagrid columns RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a datagrid that is using DataGridTemplateColumns.  Within each control, I want to be able to have a tool tip dynamically set.  For example, I want to put a tool tip for each cell in an editable datagrid that shows the default value when the row was added.  I can add a field to the object that is bound for each row but how do I get that value into the tool tip?  I tried binding to it and Silverlight yelled at me.

     Thanks in advance,

  •  If you want tooltip display string, use code below

            <data:DataGrid ItemsSource="{StaticResource provider1}">
                                <Grid ToolTipService.ToolTip="{Binding Notes}">
                                    <TextBlock Text="{Binding Name}"/>

     Data class definition

        public class Task 
            public string Name { set; get; }
            public string Task { set; get; }
