    With RadGridView, Is there a way to set the ToolTipText value for a certain cell immediately after adding a row? For example:

    int rowIndex = RadGridView1.Rows.Add("column1Text", "column2Text", "Column3Text");
    RadGridView1.Rows[rowIndex].Cells["FirstColumn"].?? (ToolTipText property) = "ToolTipValue";

    Is there any way to set the ToolTipText property for a certain cell of that row?

    Hello Jason,

    Thank you for writing.

    In this case you can use the ToolTipTextNeeded event of the grid to achieve the desired behavior. For example:
    public Form1()
        this.radGridView1.ToolTipTextNeeded += new Telerik.WinControls.ToolTipTextNeededEventHandler(radGridView1_ToolTipTextNeeded);
    private void radGridView1_ToolTipTextNeeded(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.ToolTipTextNeededEventArgs e)
        GridDataCellElement dataCell = sender as GridDataCellElement;
        if (dataCell != null)
            if (dataCell.ColumnInfo.Name == "Name")
                e.ToolTipText = "yourCustomText";

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
