Tooltip for Dropdown list elements in Grid batch edit


I am using Grid with batch edit and one of the column uses a dropdown list with dynamic values. Sometimes the values in the list could get longer than the column width and are not completely readable in the dropdown. Is there a way to add tool tip to the dropdown so that person could see the full content of the list item upon hovering? Similar to clipMode: 'EllipsisWithTooltip' option at the grid level. I tried using tooltip inside field{} but didn't work.

Based on your query, you want to show the tooltip for the dropdown list items in the edit mode. Your requirement can be  achieved by using the edit template in EJ2 Grid and adding the tooltip to the Dropdown List. Please refer the below documentation for detailed explanation for your requirement.
