    We are setting tooltip property (server side) on nodes.
    These are rendered as alt-tag for the image of a node.

    This means that the tooltip is not displayed on the image in any modern browser. Only IE7 displays the alt-tag as tooltip, all other browsers that I have tested needs the title-attribute instead.

    Hopfully you will fix this in the next release?

    Hello Antonius,

    Indeed when setting a tooltip to the node and there is an ImageUrl property set, the tooltip is set as an alt property of the rendered image on the page (thus, displaying the tooltip only when the image is not present). I will forward your request to our development team so they can review this scenario and possibly include it as a future improvement of the control. Meanwhile I can suggest that you use template where you can place any control and set its tooltip as desired.
