    I have a RadDatePicker control in an EditForm Template of a RadGrid. How can I attach a RadToolTip to this datepicker control? I tried the suggestions from other posts where IsClient=true and I appended "_dateInput_text" to the targetcontrolid but  I am not able to get the RadTooltip to display for the RadDatePicker. Does the RadTooltip work with the RadDatePicker control?  If not, can I use the jQuery Qtip with the RadDatePicker?

    I have been able to get the RadTooltip to work in this EditForm Template with an asp textbox control and also with the RadEditor control.

    I'm using the latest runtime version v4.0.30319 of the Telerik ASP.Net AJAX Suite and ASP.NET 4.0.

    Thank you.

    Hello Michele,

    The ClientID of the date picker in this case is more than just its server id and a suffix to indicate the input. Since the control is in a grid hierarchy there are several other INaming containers above it, so its ID is different. It can be accessed in when the edit item is created, as shown in this help article: http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/grid-reference-controls-in-edit-form.html. For your convenience I am attaching a simple page that shows this in action. Note that I have chosen the input wrapper as a target for the tooltip, yet you can inspect the rendered HTML and choose the suffix for the button or the entire datepicker control.


    All the best,
