Tooltip for Kendo Grid custom button
 
I have created one sample grid to show how the Tooltip is working for Kendo grid custom buttons
 
Create one new HTML page. In my case, I named it as KendoGridTooltip.html. Write the code given below in it. 
  1. <!DOCTYPE html>  
  2. <html>  
  3. <head>  
  4.     <base href="http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/grid/editing-inline">  
  5.     <style>  
  6.         html {  
  7.             font-size: 14px;  
  8.             font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;  
  9.         }  
  10.     </style>  
  11.     <title></title>  
  12.     <link rel="stylesheet" href="//kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2016.3.1118/styles/kendo.common-material.min.css" />  
  13.     <link rel="stylesheet" href="//kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2016.3.1118/styles/kendo.material.min.css" />  
  14.     <link rel="stylesheet" href="//kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2016.3.1118/styles/kendo.material.mobile.min.css" />  
  15.   
  16.     <script src="//kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2016.3.1118/js/jquery.min.js"></script>  
  17.     <script src="//kendo.cdn.telerik.com/2016.3.1118/js/kendo.all.min.js"></script>  
  18. </head>  
  19. <body>  
  20.     <div id="example">  
  21.         <div id="grid"></div>  
  22.   
  23.         <script>  
  24.             $("#example").kendoTooltip({  
  25.              filter: "span", 
  26.              content: function (e) {  
  27.               var grid = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid");  
  28.               var Str;  
  29.         $.each(grid.columns[4].command,function( index, value ) {  
  30.              if (e.target.hasClass(value.imageClass)){  
  31.             
  32.                 Str=value.title;  
  33.                 return false  
  34.             }  
  35.         });  
  36.         return Str  
  37.   
  38.     },   
  39.     width: 60,  
  40.   
  41.     position: "top"  
  42. }).data("kendoTooltip");  
  43.   
  44.                 $(document).ready(function () {  
  45.                     var crudServiceBaseUrl = "//demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service",  
  46.                         dataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({  
  47.                             transport: {  
  48.                                 read:  {  
  49.                                     url: crudServiceBaseUrl + "/Products",  
  50.                                     dataType: "jsonp"  
  51.                                 },  
  52.                                 update: {  
  53.                                     url: crudServiceBaseUrl + "/Products/Update",  
  54.                                     dataType: "jsonp"  
  55.                                 },  
  56.                                 destroy: {  
  57.                                     url: crudServiceBaseUrl + "/Products/Destroy",  
  58.                                     dataType: "jsonp"  
  59.                                 },  
  60.                                 create: {  
  61.                                     url: crudServiceBaseUrl + "/Products/Create",  
  62.                                     dataType: "jsonp"  
  63.                                 },  
  64.                                 parameterMap: function(options, operation) {  
  65.                                     if (operation !== "read" && options.models) {  
  66.                                         return {models: kendo.stringify(options.models)};  
  67.                                     }  
  68.                                 }  
  69.                             },  
  70.                             batch: true,  
  71.                             pageSize: 20,  
  72.                             schema: {  
  73.                                 model: {  
  74.                                     id: "ProductID",  
  75.                                     fields: {  
  76.                                         ProductID: { editable: false, nullable: true },  
  77.                                         ProductName: { validation: { required: true } },  
  78.                                         UnitPrice: { type: "number", validation: { required: true, min: 1} },  
  79.                                         Discontinued: { type: "boolean" },  
  80.                                         UnitsInStock: { type: "number", validation: { min: 0, required: true } }  
  81.                                     }  
  82.                                 }  
  83.                             }  
  84.                         });  
  85.   
  86.                     $("#grid").kendoGrid({  
  87.                         dataSource: dataSource,  
  88.                         pageable: true,  
  89.                         height: 550,  
  90.                         toolbar: ["create"],  
  91.                         columns: [  
  92.                             "ProductName",  
  93.                             { field: "UnitPrice", title: "Unit Price", format: "{0:c}", width: "120px" },  
  94.                             { field: "UnitsInStock", title:"Units In Stock", width: "120px" },  
  95.                             { field: "Discontinued", width: "120px" },  
  96.                             {  
  97.                             command: [{ name: "Edit", text: "", title: "Edit", Class: "test", imageClass: "k-icon k-i-pencil"},  
  98.                             { name: "destroy", text: "", title: "Delete", imageClass: "k-icon k-delete" }]  
  99.                             }  
  100.   
  101.                         ],  
  102.                         editable: "inline"  
  103.                     });  
  104.                 });  
  105.         </script>  
  106.     </div>  
  107.   
  108.   
  109. </body>  
  110. </html>   
From the code, given above, you can observe that Grid div Id(target Id) is given for Kendo Tooltip, which is based on the custom button image class condition and the title of the custom command buttons is shown as a tooltip content.
