WPF Accessibility - .NET 6 Tooltips Support

WPF Team Blog
19 May 2022

We continue to improve accessibility-related capabilities of DevExpress WPF Controls. For example, in our previous release (v21.2), we included UI Automation-based alerts for validation errors and Enhanced Contrast palettes: WPF Accessibility – Enhanced Contrast Palettes and Validation Support.

In our upcoming release (v22.1), we modified tooltip behavior for .NET 6 (based on Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 requirements).

The following features will soon be available:

  • Users can hover the cursor over tooltips.
  • Controls will display a tooltip immediately after receiving keyboard focus.
  • Users can display or dismiss the tooltip using the Ctrl+Shift+F10 keyboard shortcut.


For more information on accessibility support, feel free to download/review the latest version of our Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT).
