How to display control's description for the CMS user

  • How to display control's description for the CMS user
  • Hi everyone,

    Does anyone know if it's possible to show for the CMS backend user the controls description somehow?

    I have a list with custom controls that are listed within the Drag widget section of my Edit mode page view and would like to somehow give more information on them for the user...

    I know that I can use description attribute when registering my custom tool but this isn't visible to the CMS user (or is it?)...

    Can someone guide me here, please?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

  • I went in to have a look, and you are right!

    The Description field renders out on the widget in the toolbox as an attribute called "description"....where if it rendered out as "title" then the description becomes a tooltip popup

    Have a look:

    @Telerik, can you please fix this?
  • Thanks, Steve!
    Look forward to Telerik's confirmation that this has been fixed:)
  • Hello Viktoriya,

    I have logged a task to make the description attribute a title so the description pops up on hover. This will probably be included in the next official release. You can track the status of the task in PITS (

    Let us know if you need further help.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
