Hi,
How can i set RadComboBotip on the selected item text in javascript?
All the combo items are loaded dynamically using ObjectDataSource.

Thanks,
Ruth.

Hello Ruth,

You can set the ToolTip of the RadComboBox in its SelectedIndexChanged event as shown below:
cs:
protected void RadComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object o, RadComboBoxSelectedIndexChangedEventArgs e) 
    { 
        RadComboBox combo = (RadComboBox)o; 
       combo.ToolTip = combo.SelectedItem.Text; 
    } 

Thanks
Princy.

Hello Basel Nimer,

You can do the same on the client in a similar way, i.e. handle the client-side SelectedIndexChanged event in this way:

function onSelectedIndexChanged(sender, eventArgs) {
    sender.get_element().title = eventArgs.get_item().get_text();
}

I have the same need.  I have a RadComboBox inside a repeating control.  OnClientDropDownClosed, I want to set the ToolTip.  How can I do this?

I just need to know how to reference the tooltip property. 

I want to do something like this:

 

function HandleClose(comboBox) { 
  
  comboBox.tooltip = "some custom text"; 
  
 }

 

Please help.

Hi Jeff,

You can use the same code, provided that the comboBox parameter is a reference to the client-side object of the RadComboBox:
function HandleClose(comboBox) {  
  comboBox.get_element().title. = "some custom text";  
}

I hope this helps.

Best wishes,

I have rad combobox for which I am setting the tooltip on server side (only for 1st time when it loads) But after that if the selected index changes I want to change the tooltip onchange event. But it's not working.
I used the same function is mentioned in previous post. 
If the tooltip is not set on server side then it works fine.
Please help..

Try setting the AutoPostBack property of the combobox to "true".
