    I currently have a project where I load a UserControl inside a tooltip.  Inside this tooltip, there is another tooltip which is used to display help.  However, when I click on the "help tooltip button", the original tooltip disappear.
    Is that normal ? Can't I have something like "nested tooltips" ?
    If it's not possible, what is the best way to implement such behavior?  With a RadWindow ?

    Thank you very much!

    Hello Guillaume,

    Only a single tooltip might be visible at any given time. This behavior is by design and will not be changed as changing it would defy the purpose of the control.

    The purpose of a tooltip is to provide additional information for a given element. It is not meant to be used as a popup control or as a draggable panel. For this purpose we provide RadWindow and RadDock controls. Both of these controls allow more than one visible element of the kind on the page.

    Our suggestion is to consider using RadWindow and RadDock controls.
