Why this works

   <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=TestString, RelativeSource={RelativeSource FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type myToolTip:UserControl1}}}"/>

BUT this does not

<myToolTip:UserControl1 x:Name="userControl">
   <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=TestString, ElementName=userControl}"/>

and is there realy no shorter (faster) fay, to acces usercontrols elements?! Sincerely, 0xDEAD BEEF
