I want to reduce the width of the tooltip box border and also tweak it so that the text is properly centered - in all the samples and in my code the text seems to have some left padding but no right padding - and the outer box is horribly fat.

Any way yet to adjust this or is this another Qx development?

Anything that can be done with a jquery fudge?

I'm really trying to get this working so I can get rid of my old DevExpress charts!

Regards

Jon

Hi Jon,

Have you checked out all of the CSS selectors for styling the RadToolTip appearance?
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/tooltip-appearance-css-selectors.html

If so, you may want to consider creating a custom skin for your tooltip. Since the borders are stored in sprites, you won't be able to reduce their size very easily.

Good luck,
Master Chief

Sadly these are different, the tooltips that come from the chart are not the same as the radtooltips - at least that's what I think....  Can someone from telerik confirm/deny this?

Hello Jon,

In the current version of RadControls it is not possible to modify the appearance of the tooltips, except for their background color. Nevertheless, I have logged this idea in our feedback portal here, so that you can monitor, comment and vote on it, in order to raise it priority.

For the time being you can manually change the border width and the padding of the tooltips by getting the class of the tooltip wrapper and change its CSS. For example:
CSS:
<style type="text/css">
    .k-tooltip
    {
        /*Modify the border width*/
        border-width: 5px !important;
        /*Modify the padding*/
        padding-left: 5px !important;
        padding-right: 5px !important;
    }
</style>

Regarding the tooltips that come from the RadTooltip and the ones that come from the RadHtmlChart, they are not the same, so I am not sure if you can directly use the RadTooltip upon the RadHtmlChart.

I have also updated your Telerik points for sharing your ideas with us.

Hi Danail,

Many thanks for that - I use a 1px border and they look much better.  Thankfully you can do the CSS fudge - always helpful to be able to have a work around :)

Thanks for the points too!

Regards

Jon
