I'm trying to display a custom toolTip which is different from the headerText:

ID   Item
1    Disco Ball

Where the headerText "Item Name" would have a toolTip stating "Stuff you like to play with". Let's say the dataField in this example is "item".

Ultimately I'd like a function where I can use a switch statement on the columns dataField property:

switch (columnname) {
case "item":
str = "Stuff you like to play with";
break;
}
