    I would like to use one ToolTip for multiple buttons.  The ToolTip has custom content which includes text, buttons, checkboxes.  My plan is to create a Javascript function to bring up the ToolTip when the button is clicked on. 

    First, I would add the Javascript function to the client click event of my buttons:

    Then I need to create a Javascript function (called myFunction) to bring up the tooltip:
    function myFunction()
         // code goes here

    How do I attach and bring up a ToolTip in Javascript?

    Hello Richard M,

     Straight to your questions:

    1) To programmatically show a tooltip you should set ShowEvent="FromCode", reference the tooltip and call its method show()

    2) If you want not only to programmatically show but also to create dynamically a tooltip on the client you should use the RadToolTipManager's createToolTip method as shown in the demo below:

    I hope that my reply is detailed enough and helpful, let me know how it goes.

    Best wishes,
