Client wanted to show a tooltip containing details for key column on mouseover. After talking to him 2 mins, it is clear that they really don't need this for every key showed in the screen, rather interested only a select few. Typical case for on-demand tooltip, i should be lucky today, i happen to cross the overlib tooltip js and ASP.net Ajax WS call to get the details and display a overlib tooltip on dblclick of text and it can be either closed manually or it'll autoclose in 5 secs.
Probably something likethis or intelliTxt might show up in the control toolkit. Here is the sample code.
