I've looked through the demos and the forum, and it appears possible to tooltipify row content with the RadToolTip.

Has anyone coded a way to tipify the column headings of a RadGrid?

Eg. If the column heading is "Quantity Consumed", would it be possible to have a Tooltip appear saying "Quantity is measured in litres" ?

Hi John,

Try setting the ToolTip for the column header in the ItemDatabound event instead of  using RadToolTip control.

CS:
protected void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e) 
    { 
        if (e.Item is GridHeaderItem) 
        { 
            GridHeaderItem header = (GridHeaderItem)e.Item; 
            if (header["columnUniqueName"].Text == "Quantity Consumed") 
                header["columnUniqueName"].ToolTip = "Quantity is measured in litres"
        } 
    } 


Thanks
Princy.

Hello John,

If you go with the code provided below, you should also add the header.ID or header.ClientID to the RadToolTipManager's Target controls, e.g.

RadToolTipManager.TargetControls.Add(header.ID);

Princy,
Thanks for the code. It works well.

Tervel,
Or just set the AutoTooltipify="true" for the RadToolTipManager.


Telerik,
Could you please consider tooltips for column headings as a possible enhancement to the RadGrid.

Thanks all,
John
