    Hi Aarsh,

    You can set the AutoTooltipify property of RadToolTipManager to true to style the tooltips.

    ASPX:
    <telerik:RadToolTipManager ID="RadToolTipManager1" runat="server" AutoTooltipify="true" >
    </telerik:RadToolTipManager>

    Please take a look into this demo for more information.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Princy.

    I think I did not made myself clear, I want the in bound tool tip tags to be overridden by rad tooltip.

    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server" ReadOnly = "true" Text = "Hello" ToolTip = "This is a tooltip" ></asp:TextBox>

    and not talking about , these scenarios

    <telerik:RadToolTip runat="server" ID="RadToolTip1" Width="250px" Height="300px" >
    Rich content:
    <asp:Button ID="btnA" runat="server" Text="Button in a ToolTip"/>
    </telerik:RadToolTip>
     
    OR
     
    <telerik:RadToolTipManager runat="server"
    ID="RadToolTipManager1"
    Width="250px"
    Height="300px"
    Animation="Resize"
    OnAjaxUpdate="OnAjaxUpdate">
        <TargetControls>
            <telerik:ToolTipTargetControl TargetControlID="Link1" IsClientID="true" Value="ValueForLink1" />
            <telerik:ToolTipTargetControl TargetControlID="Link2" IsClientID="true" Value="ValueForLink2" />
        </TargetControls>
    </telerik:RadToolTipManager>

    Thanks,
    -Aarsh

    Hi Aarsh,

    Try the following to style the tooltip of TextBox.

    ASPX:
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server" ReadOnly="true" Text="Hello" ToolTip="This is a tooltip">
    </asp:TextBox>
    <telerik:RadToolTipManager ID="RadToolTipManager1" runat="server" AutoTooltipify="true" ></telerik:RadToolTipManager>

    Attached is the screenshot.

    Regards,

    That is not the point, you are still missing the point. Ok one more time :

    <
    asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server" ReadOnly = "true" Text = "Hello"

    ToolTip
    = "This is a tooltip"
    >

    </
    asp:TextBox>

    What I am asking is, before the rad form decorator, that textbox , and , tooltip, "This is a tooltip" will be in the default theme.

    after using rad form decorator
    textbox gets transformed into radtextbox's theme, but not that tool tip "This is a tooltip".


    I don't think that I should now go back to my application's each control again add this too tip manager thing ...
    Makes sense ?

    Hi Aarsh,

    The RadFormDecorator and the RadToolTipManager are two separate controls with different tasks. Automatic replacement of th default tooltips with our tooltips should not happen unless the developer chooses to (i.e. adds a RadToolTipManager) because this would break the accessibility of the page by removing the title and alt attributes that should usually be there.

    Therefore, if you want enhanced tooltips you should add the RadTooltipManager and configure it as desired. In the easiest form it does not require any configuration besides setting the desired skin and the AutoTooltipify property.
