    I need to show a tooltip on the items of a dropdownlist. However I would like for the tooltip to close after one second. I looked on the telerik forums and it seems that it exists but only for ajax AutoCloseDelay

    Can this be achieved also in kendo UI for jQuery?

    Hi Dan,

    You are right that AutoCloseDalay configuration is currently not available out-of -the-box for the Tooltip widget. Nevertheless, similar functionality could be achieved by setting the autoHide configuration option to false and handling the show event of the widget:
      autoHide: false,
      filter: '.k-item',
      content: function(e) {
        var target = e.target;
        return target.text();
      show: function(e) {
        var closeButton = $('.k-tooltip .k-i-close');
        if (closeButton.length > 0) {
          setTimeout(function() {
          }, 1000);

    Here you could a small sample implementing the above suggestion.
