    How do I apply a skin to tooltips produced using RadToolTipManager via the RadSkinManager?

    It appears RadToolTipManager is not an option in the ControlsToApplySkin property (see snippet below).

    <telerik:RadSkinManager ID="rsm" runat="server" ShowChooser="false">
        <TargetControls>
            <telerik:TargetControl ControlsToApplySkin="RadToolTip" Skin="Sunset" />
        </TargetControls>
    </telerik:RadSkinManager>

    Hello Morten,

    You can set the Skin property of the RadToolTipManager to the name of the built-in skin that you want to use. The tooltips created with this control will have the selected skin applied.

    All the best,

    Hi Slav

    so it is not possible to use the RadSkinManager to set preferred skin on all child controls of type RadToolTipManager?

    I have a masterpage with a RadSkinManager where I would like to set the skin of all my RadToolTipMangers (see screen shot).
    <telerik:RadSkinManager ID="rsm" runat="server" ShowChooser="false">
        <TargetControls>
            <telerik:TargetControl ControlsToApplySkin="RadToolTipManager" Skin="Sunset" />
            <telerik:TargetControl ControlsToApplySkin="RadToolTip" Skin="Sunset" />
        </TargetControls>
    </telerik:RadSkinManager>
    The RadToolTip part works. The RadToolTipManager produce the warning "Validation (ASP.Net): The values permitted for this attribute do not include 'RadToolTipManager'."

    Hi Morten,

    Indeed, currently there is no option for setting a skin for all RadToolTipManagers on the page via the RadSkinManager. I have brought this to the attention of our developers, nevertheless I am not able to provide a firm estimate when it will be implemented. You can follow the status of this feature via its PITS Item.

    For the time being you can set the Skin property of RadSkinManager in order to apply a global skin if all controls in your project are using the same skin. In case the skin of the tooltips has to be different, you will need to configure the Skin property of every RadToolTipManager or create an ASP.NET Theme that will define a configuration of the tooltip managers and apply it to your pages.

    Kind regards,
