    I am implementing the RadToolTip and I have a senary quite common in systems today. I want to register as a User is in a textbox the tootltip shows a message about that field, then assigns an onclick event ShowEvent so that when users click on the textbox the message appears, but when we navigate between fields by pressing "Tab" sailed in this field when the tooltip does not open, so it must use an event OnFocus.
    But my need is to use the two behaviors OnFocus and OnClick events, how could I do this? Is it possible?

    Hi Raul,

    I have a few suggestions but they depend on your exact scenario. What I can suggest is:

    1) You can declare two RadToolTips for each target control and set their ShowEvent to OnClick and OnFocus. This will simulate the desired behavior.

    2)You can set OnClick for ShowEvent and  hook up the onfocus event of the target control and show the RadToolTip after obtaining a reference to it in the following manner:

     function showToolTip()  
                 var tooltip = $find("<%= Radtooltip1.ClientID %>");  

       <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server" onfocus="showToolTip()"></asp:TextBox> 

    3) You can set ShowEvent=FromCode, hook up the desired events and programmatically show the tooltip (as in 2) but with full control over events that show the tooltip)

    I hope that you will find my suggestions helpful, let me know how it goes.

    Best wishes,
