    Nothing in documentation or here in the forums on how RadToolTip is used...

    Should be as simple as this:

    xmlns:t="http://schemas.telerik.com/2008/xaml/presentation"

    <t:RadToolTip>
        <TextBlock>
            Some text.
        </TextBlock>
    </t:RadToolTip>

    or this:

    <t:RadToolTip>
        <t:RadToolTip.Content>
            <TextBlock>
                Some text.
            </TextBlock>
        </t:RadToolTip.Content>
    </t:RadToolTip>

    But all that is displayed in the UI is "System.Windows.Controls.Textbox".

    Hi Dean,

     May I asked you to confirm that you searched in our  WPF/Silverlight documentation/forums? If yes I must say that there is no RadToolTip control for WPF or Silverlight, there are only built-in tooltips in some WPF controls i.e. RadGridView

    All the best,

    Hi Yoan,

    http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/t_telerik_windows_controls_radtooltip.html

    It is there in the Telerik.Windows.Controls namespace, my XAML using RadToolTip compiles fine and the Tool Tip pops up at run time but it only displays "System.Windows.Controls.Textbox" instead of displaying the contents of that Textbox... so my qustion on how it is supposed to be used is valid...

    Hello Dean,

     Please check this forum thread where similar question is already discussed. I suggest you not to set the content in TextBlock but just between <telerik:RadToolTip> and </telerik:RadToolTip>.
