i've got a checkbox that i want to be able to control whether or not the tooltipmanager i have shows the tooltip. i'm using a raddatagrid and the tooltips work fine on it, but i want to be able to control whether or not it shows.

so i put an asp checkbox control and on the checkchanged event, i set the mytootipmanager.visible = mycheckbox.checked. this makes it invisible, but then won't re-enable it. ie, once it's off, it's off.

ideas?

Hi Eric,

Do you use AJAX to change the tooltip manager visibility?
Also- when you make it visible, do you also make sure that the tooltip manager's TargetControls collection is properly filled (unless, of course you use the property AutoTooltipify = true, when having control IDs in the collection is not necessary).

For your convenience I prepared a sample test page that works fine on our end. Please find attached.
In case you need extra assistance, please open a support ticket and send us your project for us to examine.

Kind regards,

thank you very much for this sample. something like this still isn't working for me. however, i did just figure out how to do this at the cilent, which is just as good for this. on the OnClientBeforeShow event for the RadToolTipManager, i just call the following javascript function....

function clientBeforeShow(sender, eventArgs)
                {  
                    var chk = $get('chkShowToolTip'); //controlling checkbox
                    if (chk.checked == true){                   
                        eventArgs.set_cancel(false);
                    }
                    else{
                        eventArgs.set_cancel(true);
                    }
                }
