Using scaTooltip (source TipTip)



  1. TipTip does not work well in Internet Explorer if HTML Document Type is not defined.
  2. Source property can be changed at runtime, so if you want to use TipTip but don't want to set HTML Document Type, then you can use this code in the Start event of your Master Page in order to use Tipsy for Internet Explorer and tiptip for other browsers.
if BrowserId()=1 // IE
    scaTooltip1.Source = "tipsy"
    scaTooltip1.Source = "tiptip"
