    I am using the ajax radgrid version 2010.1.519.35 and displaying part of a long piece of text in a column. The complete text I display in the tooltip like so:
    protected void rgViews_ItemDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e) 
          if (e.Item is Telerik.Web.UI.GridDataItem) 
                string fulltext = e.Item.Cells[3].Text; 
                if (e.Item.Cells[3].Text.Length >= 70) 
                      e.Item.Cells[3].Text = e.Item.Cells[3].Text.Substring(0, 70) + " ..."; 
                      e.Item.Cells[3].ToolTip = fulltext.Replace("\r\n", " ").Replace("\t", ""); 
    The tooltips displays fine in firefox 3.6.2, resizing to fit the data, - but the problem is in ie8 the tooltip size seems to max out at about 250px wide by 200px high, which truncates the data in the tooltip. Is there any way of making the tooltip bigger?

    Kind Regards,

    Hi Jeremy,

    You cannot control the size of system browser tooltips, but you can use RadToolTip instead:
