  1. Tooltip hide configuration on clicking outside tooltip area / key pressing / scrolling

    Go here: http://demos.kendoui.com/web/tooltip/api.html

    1. Click on Area 1 or Area 2
    2. Then:
    a. click outside tooltip area
    b. press "Esc"
    c. scroll down the page

    Current result: tooltip is closed

    Expected result: tooltip should not be closed

    It would be great to configure tooltip hide behaviour whether to close or not on 2. a, b, c actions.

    • Tooltip offset

      Please allow us to set tooltip offsets, so I whatever value you calculate it to be shown at I can "push" it off further.

      Also please append a class showing of the location of the tooltip (top, bottom, left, right) to help us style appropriatly.

      • Make Tooltips which showOn focus autoHide on blur

        Currently the autoHide option for Tooltips always hides when the mouse leaves the target element. This makes sense for showOn values "mouseenter" and "click", but does not make sense for showOn "focus". In the latter case the mouse might not even be over the target when the tooltip is shown, so autoHide is not useful (and indeed you get weird behaviour like multiple tips appearing). It seems the obvious behaviour for autoHide in this case is to hide on blur. See also the forum thread:

        • allow changing Toolbar orientation (vertical vs horizontal)

          We have the needs to display a toolbar vertically. We tried your toolbar control but the feature was not there. However, we looked at the code and did minor changes to allow it. Is there any way we can submit the code so you would look at it and maybe add it to the main stream of Kendo UI javascript toolbar?

            The appropriate place to submit your code is by sending a pull request in our Kendo UI Core github repository: https://github.com/telerik/kendo-ui-core

            Thus it’ll be reviewed and evaluated by our dev team for inclusion in our main code base. Let us know when you make it in order to close this thread on our feedback portal.

          • Tooltip Angular Content Template Directive

            It would be nice if we could do something like this:

            <span kendo-tooltip>
            <span k-tooltip-content>This is the tooltip content</span>
            Some stuff
            </span>

            Instead of this:

            <span kendo-tooltip k-content="This is the tooltip content">
            Some stuff
            </span>

            This would make creating bigger dynamic content easier.

            • Do not close the tooltip when the user scrolls the scrollbar using either the mouse wheel or pointer. It should open or close only on click.

              Go here: http://demos.kendoui.com/web/tooltip/api.html

              1. Click on Area 1 or Area 2
              2. Scroll down the page

              Current result: tooltip is closed

              Expected result: tooltip should not close when the I scroll the scrollbar using either the mouse wheel or pointer.

              • Tooltip: beforeShow event

                The tooltip widget should have a beforeShow event, which can be used to bind an observable to a locale template, used by the tooltip. While it's already possible to use widgets inside the tooltip, the tooltip is missplaced, since its shown before I'm able to bind the observable (called by show event) to its content.

                • Make the tooltips generally more configurable

                  I would like to have more powerful tooltips

                  - Prevent the opening of a tooltip via the show event and preventDefault (or similar)

                  - Prevent the closing of a tooltip via the close event and preventDefault (or similar)

                  - Have tooltips which can have their autoHide option determined by whatever they are hovering over, hence half the page could use 'hover' tooltips but more complex tooltips on the same page could use a close button. Could possibly accomplish this via the previous point

                  In general on this last point, you typically have a single tooltip widget on the page attached…

                  • Tooltip AutoHide

                    Do not hide the tooltip if false is returned from an options.hide function.

                    Use Case: I need to show tooltips on the chart and keep them open onSeriesClick.
                    This is so they will appear on the PDF when generated giving better readability to the PDF.
                    I see that by design autoHide=false still hides tooltips on mouse click - but at least let the developer have a pure control over hiding it via the hide method return.

                    • Variables in Tool Tip

                      The bar chart I got is drawn form the values which are normalized. I have 7 bar charts which are drawn by looping a csv file and all the values are normalized. When I hover mouse on the bar, I want to see actual values not the normalized. So I need to include a variable in tooltip object of CSS part. But it is not working, please make something regarding this.

                      • add on open for ToolTip

                        I would like to update a single tooltip based on a user's input. I can currently do this but when the tooltip initially shows it has stale data in it. A property that would hold off on showing the tooltip until new data is added by a function would be nice and help prevent the user from ever seeing the stale data.

                        • Position tooltips relative to the mouse position

                          Please add an option to configure the base postion of the tooltip.

                          Default value is "target" for the target element. If "mouse" is set it is the current mouse position.

                            The contentTemplate will be usable in MVVM bindings that points to an css id tag element in order to pull the Tooltip's contents.

                            • Improve tooltip positions

                              Initializing tooltips on a container and filter is great, but we need a way to individualize some configuration options, especially positions.

                              Option 1: position = "auto"
                              if the target is close to the top, position is automatically set to bottom
                              if the target is close to the bottom, position is automatically set to top
                              if the target is close to the left, position is automatically set to right
                              if the target is close to the right, position is automatically set to left

                              Option2: position = function(tooltip, target) {}

                              This might be applicable to other properties.
