I created a simple test page, based on the code you have provided, but unfortunately, I was not able to reproduce the problem you describe - the RadGrid was visible as soon as the RadToolTip showed. I have attached my test page for your reference. Could you please prepare and send us a simple running project, demonstrating the problem, so that we can research what is causing it?
