    Hi, Why the ShowEvent="OnFocus" doesnt works with tha radcombobox? The others modes works normally.



                        <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBoxCurrency" runat="server" 
                            Skin="Outlook" Width="184px" > 
                        <telerik:RadToolTip ID="RadToolTipCurrency" runat="server" TargetControlID="RadComboBoxCurrency"   
                         Position="MiddleRight" RelativeTo="Element" ShowDelay="100" Text="oooo" ShowEvent="OnFocus" 
                         Skin="Windows7" AnimationDuration="300" Animation="Resize" HideDelay="200" /> 

    I'm doing something wrong?

    Hi dennis,

    The behavior you describe comes from the fact that the RadComboBox as all RadControls is complex HTML and it is formed by different standard HTML elements. The combo has its focus event when actually the input is focused and thus you should specify the input for the RadToolTip to provide the direct needed to be focused element.

    This being said I can suggest to use one of the following solutions:

    1) Set the input as shown below:

    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBoxCurrency" runat="server" Skin="Outlook" Width="184px"
    <telerik:RadToolTip ID="RadToolTipCurrency" runat="server" TargetControlID="RadComboBoxCurrency_Input"
        IsClientID="true" Position="MiddleRight" RelativeTo="Element" ShowDelay="100"
        ShowEvent="OnFocus" Text="****" Skin="Windows7" AnimationDuration="300" Animation="Resize"
        HideDelay="200" />

    Note, that the tooltip will search for a server control with such an ID and thus you should explicitly set isClientID to true.

    2) You can handle the OnClientFocus event of the RadComboBox (which internally "knows" that this is actually fired by the input) and use the RadToolTipManager's client API to show the tooltip as explained below:


    I hope that my reply is detailed enough and helpful, let me know how it goes.
