Hello we actually moving all our "asmx" to "svc (WCF)" webservice, but some Telerik controls such as Tooltip does'nt work.
When i go in debug mode the method is called, but the "object" paramters is a string valus "{object}" instead of a "IDictionary<string, object>" so we cannot get the values. The tooltip will show the "return string" but in reallity we need to got some data base on context parameters and we can't...

Does Telerik support WCF webservice?
Thanks

SimpleService.svc
-----------------------------
[ServiceContract]  
[AspNetCompatibilityRequirements(  
        RequirementsMode=AspNetCompatibilityRequirementsMode.Allowed)]  
public class SimpleService
{
    [OperationContract]  
    public string GetToolTipData(object context)
    {
        return "Hello World My My";
    }
}

Page.aspx
---------------------------
         <telerik:RadToolTipManager ID="RadToolTipManager1" runat="server" Position="BottomRight"
                Animation="Fade" Skin="Web20" Width="400px" Height="250px" Style="font-size: 18px;
                text-align: center; font-family: Arial;" Sticky="true" AutoCloseDelay="500" BorderStyle="Dotted" ContentScrolling="Auto" ShowDelay="150" HideDelay="300" ManualClose="True">
                <WebServiceSettings Method="GetToolTipData" Path="SimpleService.svc" />
                <TargetControls>
                    <telerik:ToolTipTargetControl TargetControlID="Button1" Value="1" />
                    <telerik:ToolTipTargetControl TargetControlID="Button2" Value="2"/>
                </TargetControls>

Hi Alexandre,

Basically, you have to modify your WCF web service, so it uses JSON in order to be compatible with AJAX. We prepared for you a working sample and it is attached to the thread. Here is also a link to an excellent article by Dino Esposito that explains the issues in detail.

All the best,
