How to change the tooltip for custom toolbar items?

Platform: jQuery |
Control: ejGrid

In Grid, tooltip values for the default toolbar items can be changed using the ej.Grid.Locale and its locale key words like “Add”, “Edit”, “ExcelExport” as tabulated in the following Help Document.


But custom toolbar items and its tooltip cannot be changed in the same way using ej.Grid.Locale.



Tooltip for the custom toolbar item can be changed using the data-content attribute. Initially, this attribute has been set as its respective item name which is the default behavior. Later, it can be changed in the databound and actionCompelete events of the Grid.

Template and CSS:



Define the databound and actionComplete events with the update for the data-content attribute for all the custom toolbar items.
