Hi,

I would like to know if I have an asp dropdownlist control and I would like to fire the tooltip while dropdownlist onSelectedIndexChanged event.  Is it possible?

For instance, I have a dropdownlist which contains 10 elements and one of the item is called "Add a new Item".  When user selected this item (only this item alone), I would like to fire a tooltip to have a form loaded into the tooltip content panel.  However, how would I achieve this with TooltipManager?

Telerik,

Any luck? is there any client side API which I can use to stop the ajaxify request to the code-behind while selectedIndexChanged happens to the dropdownlist?

Hello Chris,

I am not completely sure that I understand your exact scenario but you can show the tooltip on the client by using the client-side method show() and on the server - the server method Show(). However, since the tooltip contains content on the same page, in case you mean that you want to show another external page by saying that you want  "to have a form loaded into the tooltip content panel", I suggest to also consider our RadWindow control which is also a popup but it loads an external page - its demos are available below:

In case you need further assistance, please provide more details about the exact scenario you want to implement.

Best wishes,

Hi,

I decided to use RadComboBox to fire the tooltip on item selectedIndexChange event.  I have post my question on the other post.  Thanks.
