    Is there a way to configure a tooltip for the items in the RadCombo for silverlight?  I need each one to have a tip.

    Thanks,

    Hello Lucas,

    There is a way to configure a tooltip for each element of a RadCombobox. I have attached a simple project how you can attach manually to each element, all declared in xaml. Of course you can add it to a databinded RadCombobox if you put it into the DataTemplate. Here is a simple code how it can be done:

     <Grid.Resources> 
                <DataTemplate x:Key="ComboBoxCustomTemplate"
                    <Grid Margin="5,5,5,5" Width="350" m:ToolTipService.ToolTip="{Binding Name}" > 
                        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions> 
                            <ColumnDefinition /> 
                            <ColumnDefinition /> 
                        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions> 
                        <Grid.RowDefinitions> 
                            <RowDefinition /> 
                            <RowDefinition /> 
                        </Grid.RowDefinitions> 
                        <TextBlock FontWeight="Bold" Grid.ColumnSpan="2" Text="{Binding Name}" /> 
                        <TextBlock Grid.Row="1" Text="Phone:" /> 
                        <TextBlock Grid.Row="1" Foreground="Blue" Margin="40,0,0,0" 
                                Text="{Binding Phone}" /> 
                        <TextBlock Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" Text="Zip:" /> 
                        <TextBlock Grid.Row="1" Foreground="Blue" Grid.Column="1" Margin="26,0,0,0" 
                                Text="{Binding Zip}" /> 
                    </Grid> 
                </DataTemplate> 
                <DataTemplate x:Key="ComboBoxSimpleTemplate"
                    <Grid> 
                        <TextBlock Foreground="Red" Text="{Binding Name}" /> 
                    </Grid> 
                </DataTemplate> 
            </Grid.Resources> 

     This code block is from our online Databinding demo. I have just added the tooltip to the grid that wraps the items.

    Hope that helps. If you need more help please let me know.
