ASPNetToolTip Licensing & Registration

1.  Getting Licensed


The ASPNetToolTip free trial is not to be used for commercial purposes or any public use.  On live web servers, ASPNetToolTip will display a watermark beneath your ToolTip while unlicensed (as shown below).

ASPNetToolTip Registration Watermarking

To register ASPNetToolTip for commercial use and remove this watermark, you purchase a License Key from www.aspnettooltip.com. There are no ongoing fees or subscription costs.

  • A Website License allows the usage of the software on a single website.
  • A Server License allows the usage of the software on a single server.
  • A Developer License allows the usage of the software on multiple bespoke websites built by one individual software developer.
  • A Enterprise License allows the usage of the software on multiple bespoke websites built by up to 10 associated software developers.
  • A Redistribution License allows you to package and redistribute the software as part of a single, discrete software package, such as a Content Management System or Intranet product.

After purchase, you will receive a license file by email.

2.  Installing Your License Key


i.  Option A:  Install into your Web.Config File

Place the following code (with your key inserted for'YOUR_LICENSE_KEY_HERE') somewhere between the "<configuration></configuration>" tags in your Web.Config file on your live website:

<appSettings>
    <add key="ASPNetToolTip.ToolTip" value="YOUR_LICENSE_KEY_HERE"/>
</appSettings>

ii.  Option B:  Install using License File (.lic)

Copy your License File (.lic) into the ~/bin directory of your website.  Make sure that the name of the file is exactly "ASPNetToolTip.ToolTip.lic" as sometimes when downloaded, it is changed to "ASPNetToolTip[1].ToolTip.lic" (see below).

 

3.  Troubleshooting


i.  The watermark still appears even though the control is licensed

Sometimes when License files are downloaded from our website, the name of the file is changed to "ASPNetToolTip[1].ToolTip.lic". For the license to be read, the file name must read "ASPNetToolTip.ToolTip.lic", as intended.  If your license is in the right place (your website's "bin" folder), and it is still not working, this might be the problem.
