    I need some assistance with the .aspx menu control, please and thank you.  I am using the standard menu item tooltips (not the Rad Tooltip control) with dynamically added menu items.  When the menus display, the tooltip text boxes cover the undelying menu items preventing the user from seeing the menu items.  See attached screen capture graphic.

    I would imagine there is some method of controlling the placement of the tooltip, but after quite a bit of reading on your site, I haven't been able to find anything that describes this.  I'm probably just stupid, but could someone tell me how to move the menu items tooltip display?

    Thanks very much in advance!

    Hi Lynn,

    I'm afraid that you cannot set position for the standard menu item tooltips.

    I suggest you use RadToolTipManager, you just need to set its AutoTooltipify property to true and all the tooltips will be shown as RadToolTips, also you can set the position with Position property:

    <telerik:RadToolTipManager ID="RadToolTipManager1" runat="server" AutoTooltipify="true"  Position="MiddleRight" RelativeTo="Element">
    </telerik:RadToolTipManager>

    Yana,

    Thank you.  I've made your recommended change to one of the pages where it's applicable and it worked fine.  Nice solution and it gives me more options, rather than fewer.

    Thanks again!
