ToolTip in DropDownList in TemplateControl

P: n/a

How can i display tooltip message on a dropdownlist template control inside
a GridView Footer.

I found this code working well, but it dosen't work inside a gridview:

<div id="tooltip"></div>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div onmouseover="MostrarTooltip('<%=DropDownList1.ID%> ')"
<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server" Style="z-index:
101; left: 296px;
position: absolute; top: 176px" Width="144px">
<asp:ListItem Value="Texto Normal">Texto Normal</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="fghfgh">Texto mas largo no


Here are using a java script function.

Hi Laurahn,

From your description, you're using some custom script to display tooltip
for dropdownlist in your ASP.NET web page. The script works well normally,
but fails when the dropdownlist is nested in a GridView template ,correct?

According to the code/template snippet you provided, you use a <divto
wrap the dropdownlist and handle the mouseover and out event. Then, when
you put the dropdownlist in GridView template, does the event
handler(script function) be called? If the function is called, you can try
add some test statement into the function to see at which statement does
the code run into problem.
