    Hi Gina,

    Here is the forum link which discusses how to close the tooltip from code behind.

    would it be the same for C# ?  I get syntax errors  for ([GetType](), "rttName", " CloseActiveToolTip();")

    is this correct on what i need in the back end to close the tooltip ?

    "rttName", " CloseActiveToolTip();")

    Hello Gina,

    As far as I see from your code the problem comes from the manner you have taking the type - this is teh way you do it in VB and in C# it should be:

    ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript( this.GetType(), "rttName", " CloseActiveToolTip();")

     You can find more information about executing script from the server in the blogpost below:
