    Why is the tooltip disappeared when the control is disabled? For example, in the RadRichTextBox example you posted online (a mimic of Word), when buttons in the ribbon/toolbar are disabled, the tooltip does not work. I need the behavior in Word – the tooltip is always showing no matter the button is disabled or not. How should I do that? Thank you!

    The web showed an error after I posted, so I posted again. And the web does not allow me to delete the duplicated.

    Hello Frank,

    Generally, our RadToolTipService does not support ShowOnDisabled property like the Ms ToolTipService does. You can vote for this feature request in order to increase its development priority.

    If you need specific tooltip built-in some of our controls (RichTextBox or other) to be shown on disabled button, please open a new support thread (with Product RichTextBox or other) with more details (for example snapshot) of the particular tooltips you need. Probably, this can be accomplished with editing the default style / template of the control in question. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    Is there any progress on this? I would very much like to have tool-tips displayed even if the associated control is disabled.

    For now I resorted to wrapping controls inside a grid and applying the tooltip to the grid so that the tooltip still displays even if the control hosted by the grid gets disabled.
