Hi,

I'm using a web service to populate a scheduler with appointments, and I have set the Tooltip property on the appointment to a fixed literal string "Customer Name". Unfortunately the grid has a hover over tooltip that contains the Subject i.e. the same information as already displayed on the box.

In debugging on the client side, I can see that the _Tooltip property of the client side appointment is indeed the same as the subject.

How can I get informational tooltips working in this environment?

Does anybody have an example of a scheduler, using web service binding, and displaying informational tooltips, either as standard or using a RadTooltip control?

Cheers.

Mark

Hi Mark,

You can handle OnClientAppointmentCreated to set the tooltip:
eventArgs.get_appointment().set_toolTip("custom tooltip");

Hi Peter,

I presume that I then have to grab the tool tip content from my web service? I would have to return all the tool tips for visible appointments in one web service call however.

Clearly this is a workaround, because the component should accept tool tips from the web service as a part of the appointment structure shouldn't it?


Anyhow, the client is interested in displaying lots of info in a tool-tip/popup, so how would I go about using the RadTooltip component with an appointment? Can this be done using the OnClientAppointmentCreated callback? or is there a more efficient way?

Cheers,

Mark

Hello Mark Rabjohn,

Yes, you can use RadToolTip with web service. Please, see the following demos:
