    Hello,
    I would like to give a suggestion
    1.Is is possible to have a tooltip work independent of a targetcontrol and the showevent.  Keep the current fuctionality as it is but also give a way for the developer to show the tooltip using JS code and position the tooltip relative to the the mouse. I understand that there is 'RelativeTo' property but it is still tightly linked to the Showevent and the target element, I think.  Ideally it would be nice if I can do something like

    tooltip.show()

    through JS code in any JS event handler and have th tooltip display where the mouse is.

    If this is something that can be done now, please let me know.

    Thanks and regards,
    Raj

    Hello Raj,

    Generally speaking, the main idea of the RadToolTip control is to show up when the user hovers over something so the functionality that you require is in some way out of the scope of the control. Nevertheless I logged your suggestion in our database and we will consider it for a future version.

    For now, I would suggest to check the RadWindow control which has a full-blown API for showing and positioning. With Q2 at the end of the summer, the RadWindow control will also be ported to the Prometheus suite which will give you even more flexibility in its usage.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your reply.  I have not used RadWIndow so far.  If it is a regualr browser window pop-up, this will not work for me because what I need is a  DIV based window that is also 'modal'. Regualr browser window pop-ups can create problems in terms of pop-up blockers and can lead users into error situations.  Also  I saw on this forum that ToolTip will provide 'modal' functionality.  So the functionality I suggested will enhance the power of tooltip even further.  I hope you will strongly consider this feature.  In the meantime I will check-out the rad window.

    Thanks again,
    Raj
