    I am writing an interface whichh uses AJAX and nonAJAX enabled controls, I am having problems getting a nonajaxed control to implement its tooltips via the Telerik ToolTipManager.  The control is a flowchart called, I have got it to fire a javascript event when hovering over a node but am stuck there.

    The tooltipmanager is setup to load a seperate ascx page as per your demo's, the onajaxupdate looks something like:

    protected void OnAjaxUpdate(object sender, ToolTipUpdateEventArgs args)
        // Get control references
        Control toolTip = LoadControl("~/SharedToolTip.ascx");
        Label titleLabel = (Label)toolTip.FindControl("lblTitle");
        Label displayLabel = (Label)toolTip.FindControl("lblFullText");

    Is it possible to initiate the onajxupdate event of the tooltipmanager from javascript?  I am using the 'args' parameter to pass a control array through, so ideally would need that functioanlity to.

    Hi Alex Lawson,

     To fire the OnAjaxUpdate event from the client, you should show the tooltip by using the method show(). It is possible to also create the whole tooltip on the client or simply reference it and call show(). Sample demo demonstrating this functionality is available below:
