    Is there a way to control the tooltip duration? I'm looking for a way to keep the tooltip always visible.

    Hello Frank,

    Thank you for the questions.

    You can get the ToolTip object out of a RadControl and set its AutoPopupDelay to a big value, for example, to int.MaxValue:

    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()
            ToolTip toolTip = this.radButton1.ElementTree.ComponentTreeHandler.Behavior.ToolTip;
            toolTip.AutoPopDelay = int.MaxValue;
            toolTip.ShowAlways = true;
            this.radButton1.ToolTipTextNeeded += new Telerik.WinControls.ToolTipTextNeededEventHandler(radButton1_ToolTipTextNeeded);
        void radButton1_ToolTipTextNeeded(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.ToolTipTextNeededEventArgs e)
            e.ToolTipText = "Hi, I am a button";

    I hope this helps.
