I want to open a Tooltip with TooltipManager when the user clicks over a READ-ONLY RadRating. Is there a way to achieve this? It works with OnMouseOver, but i'm unable to assign the Click event :-(

Below follows an example based on this demo: I inspected the rendered HTML in order to get the desired information and targets. You can use the same approach and the sample below and tweak them according to your exact needs.

<telerik:RadRating runat="server" ID="RadRating1" OnClientLoad="OnClientLoad" Enabled="false"></telerik:RadRating>
<telerik:RadToolTipManager RenderMode="Lightweight" ID="RadToolTipManager1" Width="400px" HideEvent="ManualClose" OffsetX="5"
    RelativeTo="Element" Position="BottomCenter" ShowEvent="FromCode" runat="server" IgnoreAltAttribute="true" OnAjaxUpdate="RadToolTipManager1_AjaxUpdate">
<script type="text/javascript">
    function OnClientLoad(sender, args) {
        //attach the click handler to the rating items
        $telerik.$(".rrtItem a", sender.get_element()).on("click", showTtip);
    function showTtip(evt) {
        var tooltipManager = $find("<%=RadToolTipManager1.ClientID%>");
        //get the tooltip target - the rating item
        var target = evt.currentTarget;
        //get the value for the tooltip - the rating item value - when it is disabled it does not get populated in the title so we use the inner span's HTML content
        var val = target.getElementsByTagName("span")[0].innerHTML;
        //remove the title attribute of the tooltip target to ensure it will not take precedence over the load-on-demand (if present, it will)
        target.setAttribute("title", "");
        if (!tooltipManager || !target)
        var tooltip = tooltipManager.getToolTipByElement(target);
        if (!tooltip) {
            tooltip = tooltipManager.createToolTip(target);
        //show the tooltip
        setTimeout(function () {
        }, 10);
protected void RadToolTipManager1_AjaxUpdate(object sender, ToolTipUpdateEventArgs e)
    string content = string.Format("content for {0} loaded on {1}", e.Value, DateTime.Now.ToString());
    e.UpdatePanel.ContentTemplateContainer.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl(content));
