    Hi Damon,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can associate a screen tip element for each of the tasks. For the purpose, you would need to subscribe RadGanttView to the ScreenTipNeeded event. Please check my code snippet below: 
    RadOffice2007ScreenTipElement screenTip = new RadOffice2007ScreenTipElement();
    Size size = new Size(120, 70);
    Padding pad = new Padding(2);
    private void radGanttView1_ScreenTipNeeded(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.ScreenTipNeededEventArgs e)
        GanttViewTaskElement task = e.Item as GanttViewTaskElement;
        if (task != null)
            e.Delay = 1;
            screenTip.MainTextLabel.Padding = pad;
            screenTip.MainTextLabel.Text = "This is " + task.Text;
            screenTip.MainTextLabel.Margin = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(10);
            screenTip.CaptionLabel.Padding = pad;
            screenTip.EnableCustomSize = true;
            screenTip.AutoSize = false;
            screenTip.Size = size;
            task.ScreenTip = this.screenTip;

    I hope this helps. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.
