     I have been trying to search this on the forum but couldnt find any. I have a simple requirement of dynamically showing (from client side) at the x y position of the mouse. The difference between some example shown at the site is that it always has targetcontrolid but the element i clicked does not have any id.... Its a html anchor element and an example is shown below

    <a href="javascript:showComments(1);">Comment1</a>

    So far i have been able to determine the x y position of the mouse but wanted to see if there is any tooltip.showAt function which will position the tooltip at the specified x,y co-ordinates?

    Pretty sure this has been answered somewhere but couldnt find it

    Hi Dheeraj,

    I suggest to hook up the OnClientShow event, to obtain a reference to teh tooltip there and to change its top and left settings as shown below:

         <script type="text/javascript">  
            function OnClientShow(sender, args)  
               var popupelement = sender.get_popupElement();  
      = "500px";  
      = "500px";             

    Best wishes,

    I tried this and it did not work as expected. Seemed the tooltip had already been shown at previouse position and changing would not affect it. The onclientbeforeshow event seemed early to accept any position adjustment. Setting a html element for position anchor might be a solution.
