    Hello Rajasekaran,

    After investigating your requirement to incorporate tooltip functionality for each row within the WebDataGrid, I can suggest two viable approaches that could be implemented:

    Cell Tooltip Assignment: Tooltips could be assigned to each cell in every row of the grid. This approach ensures that regardless of where a user hovers within a row, a tooltip will be consistently displayed. WebDataGrid provides an event we can bind to OnInitializeRow. Then a server-side method could be created to apply the tooltip, Row {e.Row.Index+1}, across all cells in a row, thereby achieving a uniform tooltip for the entire row.



    protected void WebDataGrid1_InitializeRow(object sender, RowEventArgs e)
                for (int i = 0; i < e.Row.Items.Count; i++)
                    e.Row.Items[i].Tooltip = $"Row {e.Row.Index + 1}";

    Row Title Attribute via JavaScript: Post initialization of the grid, a JavaScript snippet could be utilized to dynamically assign the title attribute to each row. Upon hovering, this triggers the browser's native tooltip display mechanism.


        <form id="form1" runat="server">
                <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"></asp:ScriptManager>
                <ig:WebDataGrid ID="WebDataGrid1" OnInitializeRow="WebDataGrid1_InitializeRow"  runat="server" Height="350px" Width="400px">
        <script type="text/javascript">
            document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function () {
                var rows = document.querySelectorAll('#<%= WebDataGrid1.ClientID %> tr');
                rows.forEach(function (row) {
                    // Set the title attribute for each row
                    row.setAttribute('title', 'some tooltip');

    Review the provided code snippets and if you have any questions let me know.

    Best Regards,
