Hi, 

AS my title says, how do I add a tooltip to a disabled kendoButton, for the purpose of telling a user why its disabled.

Dojo: https://dojo.telerik.com/OTOpIrOV

Thanks, 

Grant

Hello Grant,

Thank you for contacting us. Normally the browser does not execute mouseenter events for disabled elements. A possible approach to add the tooltip would be to place the button in a wrapper (e.g span) which has a title attribute:
<span title="This is a tooltip">
  <button data-role="button" data-enable="false" class="myTest">button</button>
</span>

This approach would work just fine without the Kendo Tooltip. Here is the modified version of your Dojo.

And here is another workaround using the widget. Again, you need to use a wrapper so that you can initialize the widget from it, and not from the button. Here is a Dojo example demonstrating it.

Feel free to contact us if you have further questions

Regards,
Martin
