Hi,

I use RadToolTipManager with OnAjaxUpdate to show textbox-specific information. Some of the information should be updated based on the textbox's value as the user types.
Is it possible to call OnAjaxUpdate from client-side (for instance, in textbox's onkeyup event), so that the tooltip's content would correspond to the real-time typed value? Or otherwise, if you have a better way to implement such a case..

Thanks!
eyal

You could probably use a RadToolTip and place it inside a RadXmlHttpPanel. You could then call initiate the call to RadXmlHttpPanel's service request method and set the tooltip content from the server-side.

I hope that helps.

Thanks Robert!

I do not have experience yet with the RadXmlHttpPanel, so I'll wait to see if Telerik has a more straightforward solution before trying your suggestion.

Hello eyal,

What I can suggest in your case is the following:

1) Set ShowEvent="FromCode" - you can learn more about this below:

http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/tooltip/examples/showevent/defaultcs.aspx

2) Hook up the onkeydown event and reference the tooltip and call its method show() - when you call it this will invoke the OnAjaxUpdate event and the tooltip will show with the correct information. More information about the client API of the manager and how to create and reference tooltips on the client is available below:
