InputStyles Client Object

The InputStyles client object is returned by the get_styles() method of any RadInput control client object. It has a number of properties, each of which controls the style of the input control when it is in a particular state. The value of each property is an array of strings, where each string is a name/value pair for a style attribute. See OnLoad for an example of using this object.

The following table lists the properties of the InputStyles client object:


Property Description
DisabledStyle The style when the control is disabled.
EnabledStyle The style when the control is enabled.
EmptyMessageStyle The style when the control is displaying its empty message.
FocusedStyle The style when the control has focus.
HoveredStyle The style when the mouse hovers over the control.
InvalidStyle The style when the control is displaying an invalid value.
NegativeStyle The style when the control is displaying a negative value.

This example demonstrates how the InputStyles object could be used to modify the appearance of an input control:

<script type="text/javascript">
    function toggleModes(checkBox) {
        var textBox = $find("<%= RadTextBox1.ClientID %>");
        if (checkBox.checked) {
            textBox.get_styles().EnabledStyle[0] += "background-color: Gray; color: White;";
            textBox.get_styles().FocusedStyle[0] += "background-color: #AAA; color: White; border: 1px dashed DarkGreen;";
            textBox.get_styles().HoveredStyle[0] += "background-color: #AAA; color: White;";
        else {
            textBox.get_styles().EnabledStyle[0] = "";
            textBox.get_styles().FocusedStyle[0] = "";
            textBox.get_styles().HoveredStyle[0] = "";
<telerik:RadTextBox ID="RadTextBox1" runat="server"></telerik:RadTextBox>
<asp:CheckBox ID="CheckBox1" runat="server" onclick="toggleModes(this);" Text="Dark Mode On" />
