    Hi Wisam,

    I already replied to your question in the support ticket that you have submitted on the same subject. For convenience I am pasting my reply here as well.

    I am afraid that at present such functionality is not supported out of the box. As a workaround you could manually add a title attribute to the drop down <li> items, thus way a standard html tool tip will be displayed on hover. It is recommended to attach the attributes on the dataBount event of the widget: 
    dataBound: function() {
        $(this.items()).each(function(index, item) {
            var model = $("#input").data("kendoDropDownList").dataItem(index);
            $(item).attr("title", "A sample tooltip for: " + model.text);

    For convenience I prepared a small example using this approach in action.
