    I have a requirement wherein my comboboxes would have a help button alongside them describing the help text related with the drop down's content. These help buttons have a tooltip for describing this content. When the user opens the drop down he/she is not able to hover over those help buttons and see the help text since the focus is on the combobox right now. I want the users to be able to view the tooltip text of those help buttons even if the drop down is open.

    Hello Chaitanya,

    RadComboBox displays a transparent popup under its dropdown in order to catch the clicks outside the dropdown. This popup prevents the underlying controls from receiving the mouse events, hence the tooltips cannot be shown. Unfortunately you cannot hide this transparent popup.
