    Hi there,

    We presently have a number of RadChart controls in a single page that we are looking to ToolTipify.
    After some study, we learnt that this is possible if we were to add a RadToolTipMgr directly underneath the RadChart in question and set the manager's ToolTipZoneID value as the ClientID of the containing div.

    However there are two things that we need clarification on, these are:

    1) If we move the RadToolTipManager to the top of the page, it stops working as intended, is this true or are we doing something wrong?
    2) Is there any way to have one RadToolTipManager that targets a number of ToolTipZoneIDs? we have approximately 8 RadChart's that we would like to ToolTipify, which based on our current knowledge for this control would require 8 RadToolTipManagers.

    Hope you can help

    Hello Ahmed,
    Straight to your questions:
    1. You should be able to move the tooltip manager to the page and still use its ToolTipZoneID property. Just make sure that you have supplied the correct ClientID of the zone to the manager. You can use FireBug for FF or IE Developer Toolbar for IE to check the ClientID. Additionally, in case the zone is not initially on the page and you load it via AJAX request, you should update the tooltip manager during this request as well.
    2. No, you cannot set multiple zone ids for the tooltip manager. You can, however, use a simple tooltip manager and use its client-side API to tooptipify the zones. The syntax that you can use is the following:
