Add tooltip to RadioButtonList


I have a radio button list that I bind data to in code:

            With rblFollowUp
                .Items.Add(New ListItem("", 0))
                .DataSource = po_ds.Tables(0)
                .DataTextField = "Question"
                .DataValueField = "StatusID"
                .ToolTip = "QuestionToolTip"
            End With

Both the textfield & dataValue are text values relating to data items from the DB

I want to add a tooltip to each node from the database, but using my code above thay all have the tooltip "QuestionToolTip". Its not bindning to that data rather its using the string value.

try this

For Each item As ListItem In rblFollowUp.Items
item.Attributes.Add("title", item.Value)

Thanks, does this mean I have to change my databinding method?  I have a dataset not a datareader.
