Hi Alavudeen,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.

We have achieved your requirement “Show a tooltip for particular column in code behind“ by setting a tooltip to specific column before binding the data in code behind. Also, we have an UG document for the same.
Please refer to the following code example, screen shot, help document and sample,

Code Example:

<ej:Grid ID="Grid1"  OnDataBound="databound" AllowSorting="true"  AllowSelection ="True"

             AllowScrolling="True" AllowResizing="True" 

            EnableRowHover="true" AllowFiltering="True"  AllowPaging="true" AllowCellMerging="false"

             ShowStackedHeader="true" Locale="en-US" AllowMultiSorting="false"





                <ej:Column Field="OrderID" HeaderText="Order ID"   TextAlign="Right" Width="90" />

                <ej:Column Field="CustomerID" HeaderText="Customer ID"   Width="100"  />

                <ej:Column Field="EmployeeID" HeaderText="Employee ID" HeaderTemplateID="#employeeTemplate" TextAlign="Right" Width="110"  />

                <ej:Column Field="Freight" HeaderText="Freight"  TextAlign="Right" Width="90" Format="{0:C}" />

                <ej:Column Field="OrderDate" HeaderText="Order Date" Width="100" HeaderTemplateID="#dateTemplate" TextAlign="Right" Format="{0:MM/dd/yyyy}" />

                <ej:Column Field="ShipCity" HeaderText="Ship City" Width="100" />



             <PageSettings PageSize="15" />



             <ClientSideEvents ToolbarClick="onToolBarClick" />


            <SelectionSettings EnableToggle="true" />




<server side>

private void BindDataSource()


            int orderId = 10000;

            int empId = 0;

            for (int i = 1; i < 9; i++)


                order.Add(new Orders(orderId + 1, "VINET", empId + 1, 32.38, new DateTime(2014, 12, 25), "Reims"));

                order.Add(new Orders(orderId + 2, "TOMSP", empId + 2, 11.61, new DateTime(2014, 12, 21), "Munster"));

                order.Add(new Orders(orderId + 3, "ANATER", empId + 3, 45.34, new DateTime(2014, 10, 18), "Berlin"));

                order.Add(new Orders(orderId + 4, "ALFKI", empId + 4, 37.28, new DateTime(2014, 11, 23), "Mexico"));

                order.Add(new Orders(orderId + 5, "FRGYE", empId + 5, 67.00, new DateTime(2014, 05, 05), "Colchester"));

                order.Add(new Orders(orderId + 6, "JGERT", empId + 6, 23.32, new DateTime(2014, 10, 18), "Newyork"));

                orderId += 6;

                empId += 6;


            this.Grid1.DataSource = order;

            this.Grid1.Model.Columns[1].Tooltip = "{{:value}}";
