    I am looking to implement the kendo ui tooltip for MVC. With the way I have it implemented now, I am getting a whole bunch of random symbols showing up in my tooltip.

    I've attached a screen shot of what I am seeing and attached the relevant portions of code I am using. I am hoping to fill my ServiceTypeToolTip div with significantly more content and there will be about 20 of these such sections on the page. 

    *I am using Kendo 2013.1.319

    Any help would be appreciated.


        <div id ="ServiceTypeToolTip">
            <p>this is one line</p>
            <p>this is line 2</p>
            <p>this is a very very very very ver yver yveryv eryvery veyrvey rye long line</p>

    <img src="~/Images/question-mark-icon-tiny-small.png" id="ServiceTypeImg" />

    Hi Tim,

    What I am seeing is a sprite image from the old Telerik MVC Extensions. It is complelety unclear what styles cause it to appear in the described scenario - I guess there is some custom CSS code that you are using. Please inspect the Tooltip and its contents with a DOM inspector to find out more information about the applied styles and where they come from. For example, you may need to disable background image repeat, or use a single icon for a background image, instead of a sprite image (if the element that has the background image applies is large by design).

    Hi Dimo,

    I took your advice and it looks like on the css for the k-tooltip class, the background image is set by default to Vista/sprite.png.

    I am not sure how that got set there. Anyways, thanks for pointing me in the right direction, I can just override that property with my own.
