hi,
Is there any way to change the style from normal to tool tip like Silverlight when the mouse goes over the text-box and then the error appear? instead of having it on the side of the textbox?

thanks

Hello Hem,

I am afraid this is not supported out-of-the-box. You can try setting the position of the validation message to "absolute", so that it does not push adjacent content:

body  span.k-tooltip-validation
{
    position: absolute;
}

However, note that the success of this approach may depend on the exact scenario and layout.

Kind regards,

There are a couple of problems with this approach:

1. The validation error doesn't deal with position and the edges of the screen so it goes off the screen. (and there is no way as far as I'm aware to set alignment).

2. I have been unable to manually position the tooltip (I'd like to put it above or below the control)

The validation control really needs to support tooltip mode and in both modes allow placement of the result. (i.e. even in inline mode it should be able to be placed below or above the control)
