    Hi all,
    I have a Tooltip (2010 Q2) configured to not automatically close. This works fine. In my tooltip I have some links but as soon as I move the mouse into the Tooltip, the Tooltip disappears :-(
    I thought "ShowCallout" is the function I need, right? Get/Set whether the tooltip will hide when the mouse moves away from the target element, or when the mouse [enters] and moves out of the tooltip itself. 
    So Tooltip should only disappar if the user moves away the mouse from the target or the tooltip. But in my case he moves the mouse away from the target into the tooltip. Would this be a problem? There does not seem to be any difference whether I select 'True' or 'False' because in both cases it stays open as long as I'm in the text, but it closes as soon as I move away (into the tooltip or anywhere else)
    ToolTipp = New Telerik.Web.UI.RadToolTipManager
          With ToolTipp
              .ID = "RadToolTipManager1"
              .RelativeTo = Telerik.Web.UI.ToolTipRelativeDisplay.Element
              .Position = Telerik.Web.UI.ToolTipPosition.BottomCenter
              .AutoTooltipify = False
              .ContentScrolling = Telerik.Web.UI.ToolTipScrolling.Default
              .Width = 150
              .Height = 50
              .EnableShadow = True
              .AutoCloseDelay = 0 'Do not auomatically close as long as mouse is on the text
              .ShowCallout = True
              .Modal = False
          End With

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S. Tested with IE6 and IE8

    Hi Kai,

    The right setting for your scenarios is to set the HideEvent="LeaveTargetAndToolTip" property of the tooltip control. You can see the differences in this online demo.

    I hope this helps.
