    I have a Tooltiptified grid:

    Tooltips filled on ItemDataBound with
    Me.RadToolTipManager1.TargetControls.Add(target.ClientID, (TryCast(e.Item, GridDataItem)).GetDataKeyValue("ProductCode").ToString(), True)

    But when the Grid has no results like on

    The Tooltips are picked up by the product tree on the left and the RadMenu on top of the page.

    Any suggestions?

    I created workaround by setting the Tooltip Managers to Visible False:
    Protected Sub SqlDataSource1_Selected(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.SqlDataSourceStatusEventArgs) Handles SqlDataSource1.Selected 
    If e.AffectedRows  = 0 Then
    dtgProducts.Visible = False
    RadToolTipManager1.Visible = False
    RadToolTipManager2.Visible = False
    lbl_Message.Text = "Uw zoekopdracht levert geen resultaat"
    End if
    End Sub
    But I am still curious what causes the problem...

    Hi Fit2Page,

    I examined the provided live urls and I noticed that you are using a very old version of RadControls - 2008.2.826.20. At that time, the AutoTooltipify property of the tooltip manager had default value of true and thus, when the TargetControls collection is empty it tooltipified all the elements on the page which have their title/tooltip set and I assume that this is the reason for the behavior you report. This being said, to resolve the problem you should explicitly set AutoTooltipify="false".

    Best wishes,
