How can I show a Tooltip for the Telerik UI Grid for ASP.NET MVC?


  • Initialize the Tooltip for the Grid.
  • Specify a selector for elements, which the Tooltip will display within the grid, through the Filter configuration method.
    .Filter("td:nth-child(3), th:nth-child(3)")
  • Provide a content handler for the Tooltip by using the ContentHandler configuration method.

    function contentHandler(e) {
        // If the element is the header, return the text of the cell.
        if ("th")) {

        var dataItem = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid").dataItem("tr"));
        var content = dataItem.QuantityPerUnit;
        return content;
