I have a OnRowDataBound that I set the row.tooltip to a value.  I need to increase the display time.  I do not see any options for this when doing a tooltip.

Anyway I can do this?

Code below.

protected void EDIJobData_OnRowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            {
                string listaccts = DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "listaccts").ToString();
 
                string[] stringColl = listaccts.Split(new char[] { ',' });
 
                int count = 0;
 
                listaccts = string.Empty;
 
                foreach (string aString in stringColl)
                {
                  if (count == 4){
                      listaccts += "\r\n";
                       count = 0;
                }
                listaccts += " " + aString;
                count++;
                }
 
                e.Row.ToolTip = listaccts;
            }
        }

A tooltip is something build-in to the browser and the html element you assign it to. If you want to display it longer, you need to create your own tooltips. There are several sites that offer these for download and they are usually created with a javascript call.

Very nice one:  http://www.dhtmlgoodies.com/index.html?showDownload=true&whichScript=tooltip_shadow

Simple one:  http://www.dhtmlgoodies.com/scripts/form-field-tooltip/form-field-tooltip.html

and there are many others. Just ask if you need some other types.

it is in a gridview so it has to be dynamic to the row.

The links above are either for winforms applications (cauos solution) or for asp.net web applications (my solution). You can use either of the solutions dynamically. The first link I mentioned above has a demo page: http://www.dhtmlgoodies.com/scripts/tooltip_shadow/tooltip_shadow.html, if that works a bit the way you want it (you can set the tooltip close function upon a timer, if you want, or just keep it the way it is) I, or some other expert can help you with implementing that in your solution.

here is the issue though.  You see the line break I do after every 4 accounts, this gets messed up and unterminated string constant on the line break as I see in the source code the spacing throws it off.  I have to do this though to make sure the width of the tooltip stays a certain width otherwise it goes way off the page.

(from grading comment): "this should work and call in the rowdatabound.  Thanks"
(from last comment): "I have to do this though to make sure the width of the tooltip stays a certain width otherwise it goes way off the page."

not sure if you mean with this that you have found a way, or that you are still struggling with it. The tooltips can be given a certain width or height through CSS, depending on which tooltip solution you went for in the end.
