This example demonstrates three of the most common scenarios when the TargetControlID of the RadToolTip control is useful - the following ones:

  1. You have a control, that is a direct child of the form and you want to show a RadToolTip for it.
  2. You have a control in an ItemTemplate of a RadGrid column and you want to show a RadToolTip for it.
  3. You have a control in a UserControl and you want to show a RadToolTip for it.
Setting TargetControlID for a RadToolTip (click inside the TextBox to show the RadToolTip):
