        .Content("Hello!")
    )

Basic Configuration

The following example demonstrates the basic configuration of the Tooltip HtmlHelper.

    <span id="tooltip" class="k-button wider">
      <а href="#">Hover me</a>
    </span>

    @(Html.Kendo().Tooltip()
        .For("#tooltip")
        .Position(TooltipPosition.Top)
        .Content("Hello!")
        .Width(120)

Functionality and Features

Events

Referencing Existing Instances

To reference an existing Tooltip instance, use the jQuery.data() configuration option. Once a reference is established, use the Tooltip client-side API to control its behavior.

    // Place the following after your Telerik UI Tooltip for ASP.NET Core declaration.
    <script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
            // The For() configuration option of the Tooltip is used to get its client-side instance.
            var tooltip = $("#tooltip").data("kendoTooltip");
        });
    </script>
