    Ok I have a tooltip set to load in $document.ready...and it pops up above an element at the top of the page.  It has a 10 second delay to close (this works great)...and if I scroll down while its showing it all scrolls out of the viewable area fine.

    However if I reload the page 1/2 way down the thing pops up at the top of the window even though the element it's supposed to be relative to is no where in the visible area...

    Bug?  If not how do I fix this

    <telerik:RadToolTip ID="guyToolTip" runat="server" Skin="Sitefinity" OffsetY="-10" AutoCloseDelay="5000" HideDelay="5000"  TargetControlID="logoGuyPanel" Position="TopRight" RelativeTo="Element" ShowEvent="OnMouseOver" />

    Hello Steve,
    The behavior you describe is actually a feature of the tooltip control - the boundary detection feature. In case the tooltip is about to open not fully visible, it is repositioned so that the whole tooltip is in the visible part of the browser window. You are the first client, who mentions that he/she wants to turn this feature off. We have not exposed a property that controls this feature and that is why, currently, the only way you can switch the boundary detection off is by overriding a private client method of the tooltip class:
        <form id="Form1" runat="server" defaultfocus="TextBox1">
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Show tooltip"></asp:Label>
        <telerik:RadToolTip ID="RadToolTip1" runat="server" TargetControlID="Label1" Width="600px"
        <script type="text/javascript">
            Telerik.Web.UI.RadToolTip.prototype._oldCreateUI = Telerik.Web.UI.RadToolTip.prototype._createUI;
            Telerik.Web.UI.RadToolTip.prototype._createUI = function ()

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    Well I've got a tooltip used as a speech bubble, and that's probably not a common use for it :)  So 1/2 way scrolled down it's still popping up on me and it doesn't make as much sense


    Thanks for the tip
