    I have a project in which I am populating the tooltips using a webservice.  It is working well with the .asmx within my project.

    I want to be able to make this web service a separate website so it can be reusable by multiple applications.  Is it possible to set the WebServiceSettings on the RadToolTipManager to connect to this web service?

    I've tried setting the Path attribute to the "http:" address of the web service and simply get the error "RadToolTipManager response error: Exception=The server method 'GetData' failed.".  I've also tried setting a service reference to the web service and setting the Path attribute to the wsdl of the web service.  Still no success.

    Thanks for you help.

    Hello Ralpth,

    The RadToolTipManager does not support cross-site scripting and thus it can work only with services within the current application. If you like you can create a method in your current service that will load the data from the other site, yet this is not part of the RadToolTipManager control.

    Kind regards,
