    I have just implemented my first RadTooltip using ToolTipTextNeeded and was wondering whether it would be possible to send something more sophisticated back such as (X)HTML which would allow users to format the tooltip text in a more sophisticated manner.  You could therefore create your own bold text, italics, paragraphs etc.  and if you wanted to get really fancy, you could consider allowing users to embed graphics in the tooltip too.

    Just a suggestion.

    Best regards

    Hello Marek,
    We have this request in our TODO list, and yes we will address this request ion some of our next releases (don't expect anything similar before 2008). We have to develop a lightweight HTML rendering wrapper first. If you have more ideas on how to accomplish this task do not hesitate to write us back.

    All the best,

    Hello Hassan,

    Thank you for the question.

    You can now use RadScreenTip by the help of the ScreenTipNeeded event. RadScreenTip supports showing both text and image. In addition, our suite is now enhanced with HTML-like text formatting, so you can display style formatted text.

    Regarding the RadScreenTips, please refer to our help documentation artcle: Adding Screen Tips. You can find an example demonstrating RadScreenTips in use in our Examples application, section RadGridView >> Displaying ScreenTips.

    As to the HTML-like formatting, refer to this article: HTML-like Text Formatting. The example in our Examples application is in the RadControls Integration >> HTML-like Text Formatting.

    I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team
