#873 – Using a Popup Rather than a Tooltip

Both Tooltips and Popup controls allow you to display a small popup window that contains some content.  Which one you use depends on what you need to accomplish with the popup window.

In general, you should use a Tooltip, unless one of the following is true:

  • You need to explicitly control when the window closes
  • The popup needs to accept focus
