    Hello Eva,

    Set the HideDelay property (delay in miliseconds) according to your requirement in order to change tooltip's display time after the mouse leaves the target element.

    Hello Eva,

    Indeed, what Shinu suggest will make the tooltip stay longer on teh screen. However, from your explanations I am not sure that this is the exact problem you experience -  would you please let us know why you need to have the tooltip displayed longer? If this is e.g to let a user input some information or you want to provide him with a better control over the tooltip display time, I suggets to consider changing the HideEvent e.g to ManualClose or another one. You can find more information and a sample demo about this property below:

    Hi Eva.

    If you're talking about this sample:

    the property that you need change in your tooltip is "AutoCloseDelay", I tested and it works fine.

    (and sorry guys from telerik team, I don't know if I can suggest things like this for other users. If not, please let me know);

    Hello guys,

    Let me first explain what are the differences between the HideDelay and AutoCloseDelay properties and how they work:

    1) When you set the HideDelay property you specify how long after the hiding of the tooltip was invoked the tooltip should close. E.g if the tooltip should hide on mouseout of the target and you have specified HideDelay=500, the tooltip will hide after 500ms after the mouse leaves the target.

    2) When you set the AutoCloseDelay property you determine when the tooltip should automatically close, no matter its hiding is invoked or not. For the example case above, if you e.g set AutoCloseDelay=500, the tooltip will close after 500ms no matter the mouse has left the target or it still on it. If you want the tooltip to close only when certain event happens (in other words not to close it while the mouse in the case above is on the target) you should set AutoCloseDelay="0".
