Automatically show up validation tooltip for Textbox control RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a TextBox that I validate on the ViewModel side. The validation works and it shows a red border around the TextBox when the validation fails, the tool tip shows up When I mouse hover the top right corner of the TextBox.

    How could I make the tool tip to automatically show up along with the red border instead of having to hover on the corner and stay visible until I provide valid value or I close the dialog window?

    Please provide solution for this problem.

    As it's off topic here, I am moving the question to the "Where is the forum for..." forum.

    If you are programming a Windows application, I'd pick the proper language forum from Visual Studio Languages.

    If it's an ASP.Net project, I'd ask on http://forums.asp.net/
