    I tried to Disable the Radtooltip,
    <telerik:RadToolTip ID="RadToolTip1" runat="server" TargetControlID ="myTarget"  Position ="TopCenter"  AutoCloseDelay ="0"  Enabled ="false">

    but the Tooltip is still active... 

    I want to disable / enable the tooltip with Javascript, 
    but set_visible(true / false) don't work.

    I Use the RadControls Q1 2009 

    any Idea ?

    Hello Thomas,

    If I have understand you correctly, you want to be able to show and hide the tooltip programmatically on the client when needed. If so, you should not trigger the visible or enable properties, but to set ShowEvent=FromCode, the desired HideEvent and show/hide it by obtaining a reference to it and call its show() and hide() methods. If you need further assistance, please prepare a sample demo, open a new support ticket and send the demo to me along with detailed explanations of the actual and the desired behavior and I will do my best to help.

    I am trying the same: Disabling the tooltip functionality by

    RadToolTip1.Enabled = False

    It does not work. It works when I use:

                    RadToolTip1.TargetControlID = ""

    Any insight on this?

    Hello Marc,

    Could you try adding this as a handler to the OnClientBeforeShow event (

    function OnClientBeforeShow(sender, args) {
        if (sender.get_element().getAttribute("disabled"))

    If this is the behavior you seek and you would like it implemented in the tooltip control, you can post your request in our feedback portal:
