    I searched but couldn't find anything, so I'll try this...

    Is it possible to force all of the individual tooltips of a tooltipmanager to show up at the same location on the page each time? Ideally, for what I'm doing with the ToolTipManager, it would be nice to somehow set an exact location on the page each time for the tooltips to be displayed but as of yet, I can't figure how to do it. Any suggestions? Is this even possible? Thanks.

    What I have is a vertical column of items that can change in number and to the right of the colum is a blank space. What I'm trying to accomplish is when you mouseover any of the items in the column, the tooltip will always show up in the blank space to the right no matter what size the page is, where the page is scrolled to, where your mouse is, which item is triggering the mouseover event, etc. etc. Is it possible to accomplish this in the ToolTipManager with some JavaScript/CSS work? Or not? It would be nice to know so I'm not wasting time trying to achieve the impossible. Thanks!

    I think I figured it out. This place is useless.

    Hi Scott,

    There are a few possible approaches to achieve what you need depending on your exact requirements. The easiest way to show all the tooltips on the same place is to use the RelativeTo="BrowserWinodw" setting - take a look at the following fragment I prepared for you:

    <head runat="server">
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="manager" runat="server">
        <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" Text="Taget1"></asp:HyperLink><br />
        <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink2" runat="server" Text="Traget2"></asp:HyperLink><br />
        <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink3" runat="server" Text="Traget3"></asp:HyperLink><br />
        <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink4" runat="server" Text="Traget4"></asp:HyperLink><br />
        <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink5" runat="server" Text="Traget5"></asp:HyperLink><br />
        <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink6" runat="server" Text="Traget6"></asp:HyperLink><br />
        <asp:HyperLink ID="target1" runat="server" Text="Traget7"></asp:HyperLink><br />
        <telerik:RadToolTipManager ID="ttManager" runat="server" Width="200" Height="200"
            Text="TEST" RelativeTo="BrowserWindow" Position="TopLeft" OffsetX="300" ShowCallout="false">
                <telerik:ToolTipTargetControl TargetControlID="target1" />
                <telerik:ToolTipTargetControl TargetControlID="HyperLink1" />
                <telerik:ToolTipTargetControl TargetControlID="HyperLink2" />
                <telerik:ToolTipTargetControl TargetControlID="HyperLink3" />
                <telerik:ToolTipTargetControl TargetControlID="HyperLink4" />
                <telerik:ToolTipTargetControl TargetControlID="HyperLink5" />
                <telerik:ToolTipTargetControl TargetControlID="HyperLink6" />

    For your convenience I attached my test page.
