    I have placed a RadCombobox inside of a Tooltip, on the surface the combobox looks good, however when I click on the combobox, and then go to select the combobox item the whole tooltip disapears.  I'm not doing anything too special, but here's some code snippets,
    In looking at it, I believe what is happening is that the combobox is trying to display its own tooltips (each of my combobox items has a tooltip property) and that action is closing the original tooltip (the one hosting the combobox).  this would mean a tooltip inside of a tooltip, which may not be possible.

    Any suggestions would be great, thanks

    <telerik:RadToolTip ID="fluidTooltip" runat="server" TargetControlID="fluid2" IsClientID="true" 
                    Skin="Vista" ShowCallout="false" ShowEvent="OnClick" HideEvent="ManualClose" Sticky="true"
                                    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="LatentHeatUnits" runat="server" Style="width: 75px" ZIndex="50001" 
                                        <CollapseAnimation Type="InOutBack" Duration="200"></CollapseAnimation>

    Hi Joshua,

    The X button used to appear when you set the RadToolTip's ManualClose property to true. However, now the ManualClose and the Sticky properties are obsolete - they still can be used but we do not recommend this because problems may occur especially when using both of them in a combination because this scenario is not a valid one. This being said, the problem comes from the fact that you have set Sticky=true - please remove this setting and this will fix the issue.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team

    I have exactly the same problem, and i am not using the sticky property, I did however try to set it to false (to override any default properties) but still the problem didnt work.

    <telerik:RadToolTip ID="ttMyToolTip" Skin="Simple" RelativeTo="BrowserWindow" RenderInPageRoot="true" 
        HideEvent="FromCode" Position="Center" IsClientID="false" runat="server" Modal="true" 
        Animation="None" Width="400px" Sticky="false" > 
        <uc1:MyUserControl ID="MyUserControl1" runat="server" /> 
    MyUserControl contains the raddropdown.

    Hi Basel Nimer,
    I believe Joshua meant that each combobox item tries to display a browser tooltip, not a RadToolTip control. In your case, you are trying to display two RadToolTip controls at the same time. This scenario is not supported.
