    I saved the content of RadEditor to a database. The saved content includes all the HTML mark-ups (e.g. <​strong>Company</strong>).

    The question is when I retrieved the content from the database and bind to a label's tooltip, it shows the mark-up (e.g. <​strong>Company</strong>) instead of the formatted output (i.e. "Company" as a bold text).

    What is the correct way of showing the tooltip with formatted content from RadEditor?

    Hi Zaly,

    How exactly do you assign the HTML content to the tooltip? If you bind it to the title attribute of an HTML element (its ToolTip server property), the framework will HTML encode your content (I am attaching a screenshot) and the browser will not render the HTML, but if you pass it directly to the RadToolTip control, you should not have issues.

    Here are a few examples:

    with the Text property

    RadToolTip1.Text="<strong>bold text</strong>";

    with a control in its tags

    <telerik:RadToolTip ID="RadToolTip1" runat="server" VisibleOnPageLoad="true">
        <div runat="server" id="content"></div>
    content.InnerHtml="<strong>bold text</strong>";

    with a target that has HTML in its title attribute (based on the screenshot)

    <asp:Label ID="Label1" Text="label for textbox" AssociatedControlID="Textbox1" runat="server" />
    <asp:TextBox ID="Textbox1" runat="server" />
    <telerik:RadToolTip ID="RadToolTip1" runat="server" TargetControlID="Label1"></telerik:RadToolTip>
    Label1.ToolTip="<strong>bold text</strong>";
