Appearance and Styling

Show ToolTip

Rating control provides support for Tooltip values. This is achieved by enabling the ShowTooltip property to true. When you
move the mouse over the Rating control, it displays the Tooltip value as rating value. By default, this property value is set
to true.

Add the following code example to the corresponding ASPX to render the Rating with Tooltip.

  • html
  • <div id="container" style="border: 1px solid black; width: 300px; padding: 2px">
    
                <table>
    
                    <tr>
    
                        <td valign="top">Rating:
    
                        </td>
    
                        <td>
    
                            <ej:Rating ID="Rating1" ShowTooltip="false" runat="server"></ej:Rating>
    
                        </td>
    
                    </tr>
    
                </table>
    
    </div>

    Adjusting Rating Size

    Adjust Shape Width and Shape Height

    You can customize the width and height of the Rating by ShapeWidth and ShapeHeight properties. These properties completely depend on rating image’s size. The ShapeWidth and ShapeHeight are adjusted within the rating image size.

    Add the following code example to the corresponding ASPX to render the Rating with the customized ShapeWidth and ShapeHeight.

  • html
  • <div id="container" style="border: 1px solid black; width: 300px; padding: 2px">
    
        <table>
    
            <tr>
    
                <td valign="top">Rating:
    
                </td>
    
                <td>
    
                   <ej:Rating ID="Rating1" Value="4" ShapeWidth="29" ShapeHeight="29" runat="server"></ej:Rating>
    
               </td>
    
            </tr>
    
        </table>
    
    </div>

    Theme

    Rating control’s style and appearance are controlled based on CSS classes. In order to apply styles to the Rating control, refer to 2 files namely, ej.widgets.core.min.css and ej.theme.min.css. When the file ej.widgets.all.min.css is referred, then it is not necessary to include the files, ej.widgets.core.min.css and ej.theme.min.css in your project, as ej.widgets.all.min.css is the combination of these both.

    • bootstrap-theme
    • default-theme
