    Is it possible to keep displaying the tooltip while the cursor is on the element and hide once the cursor moves away from the element?

    Thanks,

    Hi blara,

    I suggest you to do the following:

    1. Set the RadToolTip's Sticky property to true - this will ensure that the RadToolTip will not close.
    2. Hook up the onmouseout event of your target element and close the active tooltip via javascript means.

    I prepared a sample project which demonstrates the above explained approach - you can find it in the attached archive file.


    All the best,

    Thanks Svetlina for your response.

    Your solution almost worked. What I am noticing is that if I move my mouse over the tooltip elements fast, some of the tooltips sticks around and the only way to get rid of them is to refresh the page. Mouseover the tooltip does not close them. Any suggestions?

    Thanks again for all your help,

    Hi blara,

    I recommend to download the latest "Futures" build of "Prometheus" controls - you can do this from your Client.net account .The boundary detection when using RadToolTip is improved there and I suppose that this will solve the problem.

    You can also show the RadToolTip on certain event, for example onmouseover, instead of using the Sticky property. It is up to you to choose the most appropriate for your specific case implementation.
