        We have TooltipManager on master page. The page inheriting master page has image which is binded to Tooltipmanager on master page. I want to show/hide tooltip on button click event which does postback after click. After clicking button, TargetControls of ToolTipManager are added/cleared. This doesn't work  when page is kept in UpdatePanel with UpdateMode=Conditional. The tooltip keeps on displaying on mouseover(should be removed when Hide button clicked).
    The client side code for master page is:
    <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server" >               
            <asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="cpHolder" runat="server">
            <table runat="server">
                <tr runat="server">
                        <td colspan="2" id="tdAddToolTip" runat="server">
                           <telerik:RadToolTipManager runat="server" ManualClose="true" Position="Center" ManualCloseButtonText="Close" 
                                     ID="rdToolTipManager"   Height="200" Width="350"
                                RelativeTo="Element"   OnAjaxUpdate="OnAjaxUpdate"  ContentScrolling="Default"
                            Skin="Telerik" />
    The server side for master page is:
               protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                rdToolTipManager.TargetControls.Add("ctl00_cpHolder_img", true);
            protected void OnAjaxUpdate(object sender, ToolTipUpdateEventArgs args)
                Label tooltipLabel = new Label();
                tooltipLabel.Text = "Hey it works!!!";
    The page client side code is:
    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server" UpdateMode="Conditional" >
                <asp:ImageButton ImageUrl="~/Images/btn_graph.gif" ID="img" runat="server" />
                <asp:Button ID="btnHide" runat="server" OnClick="btnHide_Click" Text="Hide" />
                <asp:Button ID="btnShow" runat="server" OnClick="btnShow_Click" Text="Show" />
                <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="btnHide" EventName="Click"></asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger>  
                 <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="btnShow" EventName="Click"></asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger>      
    & the server side for the page is:
               protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            protected void btnHide_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            protected void btnShow_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                ((Telerik.Web.UI.RadToolTipManager)(this.Page.Master.FindControl("rdToolTipManager"))).TargetControls.Add(img.ClientID, true); ;

    Please let me know if anyone knows or faced this issue earlier. Is there any other way to remove/show tooltip?

    Warm Regards

    Hi Veenu,

    I have already answered your support ticket. For convenience I have pasted a part of my answer here:
    "The behavior that you experience is the expected one, because the RadToolTipManager is not updated when its TargetControls collection is cleared. I recommend you to wrap the ToolTipManager control in an UpdatePanel with UpdateMode="Conditional". Then you can update the TooltipManager by calling the panel's Update() method:

    MaserPage file:

    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server" UpdateMode="Conditional">
            <telerik:RadToolTipManager runat="server" ManualClose="true" Position="Center" ManualCloseButtonText="Close"
                ID="rdToolTipManager" Height="200" Width="350" RelativeTo="Element" OnAjaxUpdate="OnAjaxUpdate"
                ContentScrolling="Default" Skin="Telerik" />

    Hide button click handler:
    protected void btnHide_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
