OnClientLoad

The OnClientLoad client-side event occurs after the combobox has been fully initialized on the client-side.

The event handler receives one parameter:

  1. The combobox instance firing the event.

This event is helpful if you need to get the client-side instance of the combobox when it is embedded in other controls. Hook the OnClientLoad event and get the client-side instance of the combobox as demonstrated in the example below. This technique can be used to retrieve the combo instance for use elsewhere.



function OnClientLoadHandler(sender)   {
    var combo;
    combo=sender;
}

<telerik:RadComboBox RenderMode="Lightweight" 
    ID="RadComboBox1" 
    runat="server" 
    OnClientLoad="OnClientLoadHandler" .../>

caution

This technique may not work when AJAX is used. The asynchronous requests may interfere with the OnClientLoad event.

This event cannot be cancelled.
