    Hello Balaji,

    Only a single tooltip might be visible at any given time. This behavior is by design and will not be changed as changing it would defy the purpose of the control.

    The purpose of a tooltip is to provide additional information for a given element. It is not meant to be used as a popup control or as a draggable panel. For this purpose we provide RadWindow and RadDock controls. Both of these controls allow more than one visible element of the kind on the page.

    Our suggestion is to consider using RadWindow and RadDock controls.



    Best wishes,

    I too, need this functionality.  I have three slider controls and I am trying to have the tooltip show below the slider handle with the callout visible.  I don't see where the doc or window control will bind to another control and move the way a tooltip needs to.  Is there any way to override the one visible tooltip at a time property?

    Hi David,

    As already explained, the purpose of the RadToolTip is to replace the standard browser tooltip and this is the main concept behind this control which should not be violated in order to keep the idea of the control. That is why unfortunately what you need to achieve is not possible with RadToolTip and we cannot suggest you another control of the suite which meets all these specific requirements. The code for a single tooltip cannot be overridden because it is in the core of the control and it is taken into account in all methods - even if we override all the occurrences this will most probably lead to many unexpected problems. A RadWindow control could be customized in similar manner /moved along with the handle but no callout/ as you want but again, since it is designed to be a dialog control and this is not its purpose we do not recommend to try to use it for this scenario.

    The only thing we can suggest is to use some DIV elements and custom javascript to meet your needs because they are very specific and cannot be met with RadControls out of the box.

    Kind regards,
