    Hi all,

    I am using RadToolTipManager but it is not working on my page. I set html tips on the page, and call the RadToolTipManager control in the page as follows:

    <telerik:RadFormDecorator ID="RadFormDecorator1" runat="server" DecoratedControls="All" />
    <telerik:RadToolTipManager ID="RadToolTipManager_Tasks" 
        Animation="FlyIn" /> 

    But nothing is happening, when I was expecting to see the tooltips flying. 

    Does RadToolTipManager needs the RadFormDecorator control?

    Any thoughts?

    Hi Bruno,

    If you want to automatically replace all standard browser tooltips with RadToolTips you should set AutoToolTipify to true as shown below:


    You could also specify only a zone to be automatically tooltipified by setting additionally the ToolTipZoneID property as demonstrated below:


    If you need fine-tuned tooltipfying you can use another approach, e.g Load On Demand, client side creation, separate tooltip in an ItemTemplate, etc - to get a better understanding of all the features the RadToolTip control offers, please examine the other tooltip demos in our qsf:
