    Hi There

    I have a requirement to have a popup "thingy" (assuming a tooltip ) appear when a user hover the mouse over a particular calendar cell.

    When the user hovers over this cell (date) the popp needs to happen and display a summary of specific things happening that day.

    Can someone please point me in the right direction of how I might actually do this.

    I have tried to make a RadTooltip appear but I cannot get that to work at all.

    Any help much appreciated

    Kind Regards

    Rod.

    Hello Rodney,

    In order to implement ToolTips in RadCalendar you have to customize the CalendarButton Style by creating a custom StyleSelector and setting it to the DayButtonStyleSelector property of the control. Inside of the custom StyleSelector you can easily modify the buttons in order to include a custom ToolTip. Please check the attached sample project which demonstrates the exact approach of achieving this.

    For more information about customizing the CalendarButtons you can also see the following article from our online documentation:
    http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/radcalendar-styling-and-appearance-daybuttonstyleselector.html

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Guys

    Apologies for the delay.

    Ok - I managed to get this to work by using the TemplateSelector instead of the StyleSelector.

    Its actually quite simple once you know how :)

    Many thanks

    Cheers
