ToolTip.StripAmpersands Property


Gets or sets a value that determines how ampersand (&) characters are treated.

 property bool StripAmpersands { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool StripAmpersands { get; set; }
member this.StripAmpersands : bool with get, set
Public Property StripAmpersands As Boolean

Property Value

true if ampersand characters are stripped from the ToolTip text; otherwise, false. The default is false.



An application commonly uses the same string resource for multiple purposes, such as a menu item and a ToolTip. However, menus often enable accelerators, denoted by an ampersand character, in the menu item string. ToolTips do not support this capability, so by default, ampersands are just displayed as normal characters. Setting the StripAmpersands property to true removes all ampersands from the ToolTip text.
