    I have a master page with a tool tip manager:

    <telerik:RadToolTipManager ID="ttm" runat="server" Enabled="true" Skin="MetroTouch" AutoTooltipify="true" EnableRoundedCorners="true" RelativeTo="Element" Position="TopCenter"></telerik:RadToolTipManager>

    All but only a few controls have the Telerik tooltips applied.  If I copy the RadToolTipManager and paste it into the content page everything is tool tipped as expected.  What could be the reason behind this behavior?

    Hi Robert,

    I am not sure I understand the problem. If you expect more Telerik tooltips to be present that there actually are, there are three likely reasons for the issues:

    • A JS error during the initialization of the page. Since RadToolTip instances operate with JS, this must be avoided.
    • The title attribute of the expected elements is not set before the Sys.Application.Init event when the tooltip manager is initialized. If those titles are set via JavaScript at a later time, you may want to call the tooltipify() method of that tooltip manager:
    • There is already another tooltip manager that has taken those title attributes and created RadToolTip instances for those elements but there is an issue with it (e.g., built-in skins are disabled to is is not visible, or some other settings are applied like unexpected ShowEvent, very small Width/Height)
