I really like the ToolTip control and have it working pretty much the way I want it in combination with a Scheduler control. I have AutoCloseDelay and HideDelay both set in the CodeBehind, sticky set to false and (at the moment) ManualClose set to false. I was wondering, however, if it is possible to have ManualClose true and use the AutoClose/HideDelay? This way, customers can have the tooltips displayed a reasonable amount of time before disappearing, but also gives them the option of getting the tooltip out of the way if it gets in their way.

Hi Corey,

When the RadToolTip's ManualClose property is set to true the tooltip hides when the user clicks on the close button. This behavior is by design and in this case the AutoCloseDelay and HideDelay properties' settings do not affect the control.

You can use ShowEvent="FromCode" and the rich RadToolTip' client-side API in order to build your own custom logic for showing and hiding the tooltip when you want.

Svetlina,
Thanks for the response. I suspected this was the case, though I think this is too bad. I would like to add this as a suggestion for future releases for the Tooltip control. To me, it makes sense that users should be able to close the tooltip even before the auto-timed values if the content is getting in the way. It makes more sense to me from a UI standpoint that the close methods are complimentary rather than mutually exclusive.

I appreciate the ability to manipulate this via the client-side UI. It would be nice for the future though if I didn't have resort to that.

Hi Sylvain,

This functionality is not implemented but you can easily achieve the desired effect by using the setTimeout javascript function and hide the tooltip through its client-side API if it is still opened after the desired interval has passed. Your code should look like the following one:

<form id="form1" runat="server"
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" /> 
 
        <script type="text/javascript"
        function CloseToolTip() 
        { 
          var tooltip = Telerik.Web.UI.RadToolTip.getCurrent(); 
          if(tooltip) 
          { 
            tooltip.hide(); 
          } 
        } 
         
        function OnClientShow() 
        { 
           setTimeout("CloseToolTip()", 5000); 
        } 
        </script> 
 
        <telerik:RadToolTip ID="RadToolTip2" OnClientShow="OnClientShow" runat="server" Width="200" 
            Height="200" HideEvent="ManualClose" RelativeTo="Element" TargetControlID="HyperLink1"
        </telerik:RadToolTip> 
        <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" Text="Target Control" /> 
    </form> 

For your convenience I attached a demo page.
