    Hello All,

    There are few tooltipified controls in my web page and the click events are not firing at all. I have set the ShowEvent to OnClick and dont know what is missing. How to resolve this issue?

    Thank you,

    Hello Anly,

    This is a known issue and the main reason behind this is the RadToolTip registers event handlers for the client-side events and therefore they cancel the further click propagation so that the tooltip remains visible, as a postback would hide it. This means that when the ShowEvent is set to OnClick elements such as Buttons, CheckBoxes, RadioButtons, LinkButtons may not fire their server events or even their client-side behavior may change (espeacially for the RadioButton and CheckBox - they will not change their states, as the click is cancelled).

    To avoid this set the ShowEvent to OnFocus or to OnMouseOver, for example. The same holds true for the RadToolTipManager as well.
