    Hello Marcio,

    I am not sure I completely understand your question. If you want to show a tooltip related to a textbox on a click of a button I can suggest that you use its Client-side API (the show() method) and set its ShowEvent property to FromCode, e.g.:
    <telerik:RadTextBox runat="server" ID="RadTextBox1"></telerik:RadTextBox>
    <telerik:RadToolTip runat="server" ID="RadToolTip1" ShowEvent="FromCode" Text="Lorem Ipsum"
        TargetControlID="RadTextBox1" RelativeTo="Element">
    <asp:Button ID="Button1" Text="show the ToolTip" OnClientClick="showTheTip(); return false;" runat="server" />
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function showTheTip()
            $find("<%=RadToolTip1.ClientID %>").show();

    There are different ways to load content in this tooltip and they are explained in this help article. You can attach the needed functionality to the controls as you need in your scenario.

    In case you need to confirm the click on the button I can suggest that you use the RadConfirm dialog box which is shown in this exact scenario in this online demo.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
