    I have a RadGrid in a RadWindow, with RadtooltipManager bound to the template controls in the grid.

    The tooltips, as expected, show up only in the bounds of the RadWindow, making the page larger once they are spawned. (See images below).

    I apologize if this is magical thinking, but, is there any way to get the tooltips to ignore the bounds of the RadWindow and hover over the page that spawned the RadWindow instead?

    Hello Danny,

    If you load an entire page in the RadWindow there will be no way to have the tooltips ignore the iframe bounds (the page is actually loaded in an iframe).

    What you can consider, however, is the ContentTemplate the control offers, as it will still be a part of the main page and the tooltips will not be bound in the window: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/window/examples/contenttemplatevsnavigateurl/defaultcs.aspx. This demo shows and explains the differences, pros and cons for both modes.

    Thanks for the reply, Marin.   I'll attempt this functionality in the next few days and post my results here.

    Thanks again.
