    Other tooltip packages I have seen dynamically position the tooltip according to the boundaries of a containing object or the browser window. The idea of a tool tip is that it should be visible to the user.

    So for instance if you have declared that your preferred position of the tooltip is below the tooltip element, if say the element is at the bottom of the page the tooltip will be displayed above the element so that it is visible.

    I have tried your tooltip not find of limited usefulness because of this limitation, Do you plan to incorporate this behavior into the tooltip?

    An example of a javascript library that uses this approach is :

    Hello Tony Steele,
    You are correct - that should be the behavior of the RadToolTip and it is on out TODO list. You can see that we have already done it for the top, right and left browser boundaries. The RadToolTip disregards only the bottom browser boundary.

    Me too.  Hopefully this one will be fixed soon.  I can't really use tooltip without it.

    Hello Jeffrey Hansbury,
    The bottom boundary detection is implemented - you can test the behavior of the RadToolTip control (version 2008.1.415.20) with our online examples.

    I am using the latest version Q1 2008.  And the tooltip displays dynamically and detects the bottom boundary.  However I require to use a tooltip that always stays relative to the element.  Is it possible to disable the detect on the bottom boundary?

    Regards

    Hi James,

    I am not quite sure what exactly you mean by having the tooltip relative to the element, but I suppose that setting the RadToolTip's RelativeTo property to Element will do what you expect.

    Please, note that the default setting of the RelativeTo property is Mouse. You can find more information about configuring the RadToolTip control and its default settings here

    Best wishes,
