I am not quite sure what is causing the problem when you first show the tooltip in your case. You can try setting the Width property of the RadToolTip control - this will most probably fix the problem. In case the problem persists, or in case you do not want to use the approach with the Width property, please open a new support ticket and send me a running project that demonstrates this problem and I will check what cause it.
