    Hello, I'm trying to implement something similar to the Load-On-Demand example where you have a repeater and a RadToolTipManager and everytime you hover over a repeater-item, a user-control that contains a formview loads and displays as a tooltip over the repeater-item.

    The formview is reading for a SQLDataSource, so sometimes there's a delay when executing queries, especially when the page has been idle for many minutes. The thing is, when the tooltip (containing the formview) shows it remains blank for a few seconds before it retrieves the proper data. I would like to place a loading animation similar to the one found in a standard AjaxLoadingPanel.

    What can I modify/add to the Telerik's Load-On-Demand example to acheive this?

    Thank you for your time...

    Hello Str8Hate,
    In this situation, the RadToolTip control should display a Loading message, as in the Loading Large Files example. However, with the following skins, that message does not show:
    1. WebBlue 
    2. Mac 
    3. Orange

    This issue is on our TODO list and we will fix it as soon as possible. In case you are using another skin, could you please prepare and send us a simple running project that demonstrates this behavior?

    Regards,

    Tsvetie

    That won't be necessary, I changed the skin I was using (Mac) to another skin that supported the loading animation.

    I just didn't know that three of the skins didn't support this, and I'm not too picky on how the tool-tip looks like.

    Thanks again.

    While the ajax call is being executed I get the circular 'waiting' graphic.  Is it possible to change the graphic or put my custom message on the screen while the ajax call executes?

    Hello Mayur,
    Yes, you have to modify the following CSS class in the skin of the RadToolTip, that you use:
    div.radtooltip_[Skin_Name].LoadingSign 

    You can find information about modifying built-in skins here.

    Kind regards,
