    How can i set the tooltip for grid columns. I need to display the column data in Tooltip as well as i am having fixed width columns. I can do this in radgridview using tooltip service. Is there any equivalent of that in kendo grid. If not is there any way of achieving it.

    If you're using templates for your grid rows, you can do something like this in the template:

    <td title="#= Cost #" align="right">
        #= kendo.toString(Cost, "c2") #

    Please pardon my tardy response.

    I guess this is one of the ways to achieve tooltip functionality...

    columns.Bound(p => p.partialNotes).Title("Description").HeaderHtmlAttributes(new { style = "text-align:center" }).HtmlAttributes(new { style = "text-align:left" }).Width("8%").HtmlAttributes(new { title = "#= completeNotes #" });

    I have just added HtmlAttributes(new { title = "#= completeNotes #" })

    So now when I place the mouse over the Description column data , I get the complete Notes as a tool tip.

    Hope this helps.

    and would one do this using the MVC wrapper? I cannot access the field in the manner your example shows.

    I have a column defined as follows: 
    columns.Bound(c => c.RegionCode);

    I was hoping to code it this way: 
    columns.Bound(c => c.RegionCode).HtmlAttributes(new { title = c => c.RegionName });

    Using the MVC Wrapper you can do it this way :

    columns.Bound(c => c.RegionCode)
                     .HtmlAttributes( new { title = " #= RegionName # "});

    But what if I want to use the Kendo Tooltip for different Columns in a grid?  I have three button/command columns with icon buttons.  I would like to use the Kendo Tooltip on the Button Icons instead of the normal Title attribute...Thanks...

    Hi Mark,

    Please configure the Tootip with appropriate filter setting to target the button icons only.
