    Is there a way to show validation messages as a tooltip next to the control?

    I am currently doing this manually from code and was wondering if there was a way to use the validation controls and link them to tooltips instead. Also, the tooltip don't always show up next to the control in Firefox. It will show at the edge of the screen.

    Thanks but I was already aware of that thread. I am talking about a tooltip popping up to display the individual validation messages not the validation summary.  For example, if an email address is required I want to tooltip to show up next to the email address input box stating this.

    Hi guys,

    You may find interesting this code library entry: http://www.telerik.com/community/code-library/aspnet-ajax/tooltip/replacement-for-the-validatorcalloutextender-of-the-ajaxcontroltoolkit.aspx.
    Note, however, that only one RadToolTip can be visible at any given time, so there cannot be many popup messages for many inputs, this is why I would back up the idea of moving the validation summary in a tooltip or in a notification (which can also play a sound when it is shown).

    I was using this but it no longer works with the latest version of your library. As you can see it's a bit old.

    I have tried recompiling it against the latest version of your library but that didn't work. There is some javascript that is not working in locating the control to attach the tooltip to. If you guys can fix it that would be great!

    Hi Alfred,

    We have not changed the tooltip control substantially for quite some time before the Q2 2013 beta release where we added a new lightweight render mode to it.

    I have tried the proposed idea and it seems to work with me, you can find attached the sample page and a video with the expected behavior.
