    It seems that when you set Animation="Fade" the tooltip callout won't fade just "pop" with an unpleasant effect even on short  fades.
    Is there a way to override this behaviour? .

    Also it seems that this trick to override default auto-adjust behaviour won't work anymore:
    Telerik.Web.UI.RadToolTip.prototype._adjustCallout = function () {

    Wich is the actual jQuery alternative for this?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Massimiliano,

    The _adjustCallout() method calls other methods that can be called from other places in the code as well. The purpose of the callout is to be positioned against the target and if you do not want that I advise that you simply remove it by setting ShowCallout to false.

    On the animations:
    - the callout is the last thing to be positioned in the tooltip because we won't know where it has to point until the body of the tooltip is shown and positioned. And this can happen only after the animation finished (see the resize, slide or flyIn animations that make it clearer why this is so)
    - hiding the shadows by setting EnableShadow to false mitigates this effect somewhat because there is less change on the main wrapping element of the control
    - I am logging the idea about improving this appearance and you can comment on what you would expect, vote and track it here:
    - the animations themselves use jQuery and at the current state of affairs there is no other alternative

    All the best,
