    Is there an easy way to do this. I already have my ToolTip hooked up, and it shows next to the RadEditor when the associated tool button is clicked (I just tagged a custom function in to show the tooltip), but is there a way I can get it to show up in relation to the button rather than the entire editor window?

    Hi Xorcist,

    I am not completely sure what is your exact goal and how exactly you have configured your tooltips.

    If you want simply to replace the standard browser tooltips with RadToolTips, it is enough to simply use the AutoTooltipify functionality as shown below:

    <telerik:RadEditor ID="editor" runat="server">
                <telerik:RadToolTipManager ID="mng" runat="server" AutoTooltipify="true" RelativeTo="Element"

    Setting the ToolTipZoneID property to the editor will limit the autotooltipifying only to the editor and setting RelativeTo="Element" will ensure that the tooltip will show relative to the button.

    If this is not what you need, what I suggest is to examine the RelativeTo property which is demonstrated below:

    What you should do is to set each separate button as target control and also set RelativeTo="Element".
