I have a browser functional difference using RadToolTip in template columns in RadGrid.  I have successfully used these tooltips in IE7 and FF3, but I recently upgraded to IE8 Beta 2 and now the tool tips do not display when hovering above the tooltip-ified columns.  They do display when you click and hold the mouse button down on the tooltip-ified element in IE8, but shouldn't the behavior be similar across browsers?

All that being said, this could be purely a Microsoft problem and Telerik may not be interested in trying to get all their tools 100% compatible with beta browsers. But if Steve Ballmer and Co. are changing the rules, I thought you might like to know.

IE version showing this behavior is: 8.0.6001.18241

Code to reproduce the problem is below.

ASPX:
<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="RGTest.aspx.vb" Inherits="MyApp.RGTest" %> 
 
<%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>

<head runat="server"
    <title>RGTest</title> 
</head> 
<body> 
    <form id="form1" runat="server"
    <div> 
        <asp:ScriptManager runat="server" ID="smMain"
        </asp:ScriptManager> 
        <telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="Server" Skin="WebBlue" AutoGenerateColumns="False" GridLines="None"
            <MasterTableView> 
                <RowIndicatorColumn> 
                    <HeaderStyle Width="20px" /> 
                </RowIndicatorColumn> 
                <ExpandCollapseColumn> 
                    <HeaderStyle Width="20px" /> 
                </ExpandCollapseColumn> 
                <Columns> 
                <telerik:GridTemplateColumn CurrentFilterFunction="NoFilter" DataField="Description"  
                    FilterListOptions="VaryByDataType" ForceExtractValue="None" HeaderText="Description"

                    <ItemTemplate> 
                        <asp:Label ID="lblDescription" runat="Server" Text='<%#Eval("Short_Description")%>'></asp:Label> 
                        <telerik:RadToolTip ID="RadToolTipDescription" runat="server" TargetControlID="lblDescription" RelativeTo="Element" Skin="WebBlue" 
                                    Position="BottomRight" Animation="None" HideDelay="1000" AutoCloseDelay="3500" Width="150px" ContentScrolling="Auto"
                                        <%#Eval("Description")%>

            </FilterMenu> 
        </telerik:RadGrid> 
    </div> 
    </form> 
</body> 
</html> 
 


VB:
Public Partial Class RGTest 
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page 
 
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As ObjectByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load 
        Dim dt As New DataTable 
 
        dt.Columns.Add("Short_Description"
        dt.Columns.Add("Description"
 
        Dim o(1) As Object 
        For i As Integer = 1 To 6 
            o(0) = "This is the short description"

Hello Joseph,

Thank you for the feedback. We are following closely the IE development and once IE 8 is officially out there will be an update of the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX suite that will workaround any new inconsistencies introduced by the browser. You can expect the update within 2 weeks after the official IE8 launch
