ToolTip.StripAmpersands Property

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

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

[BrowsableAttribute(true)]
public bool StripAmpersands { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
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.
