    Hello suresh,
    In order for the RadToolTip to show, it handles certain events of its target control. However, disabled elements in IE8 do not raise events. You can test with the following code:
    <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server" Text="Test" Enabled="false" OnClientClick="alert(1); return false;"></asp:LinkButton>
    <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton2" runat="server" Text="Test" Enabled="false" onmouseover="alert(1); return false;"></asp:LinkButton>

    Unfortunately, there is nothing that we can do in this case and I would recommend that you make the LinkButtons only visually disabled with CSS and not use the Enabled=false setting.
