Properties

AccessKey String

Gets or sets the access key that allows you to quickly navigate to the Web server control.

AutoCompleteType AutoCompleteType

Gets or sets a value that indicates the AutoComplete behavior of the input control

Remarks

To assist with data entry, Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 and later and Netscape support a feature called AutoComplete. AutoComplete monitors a RadInput control and creates a list of values entered by the user. When the user returns to the input at a later time, the list is displayed. Instead of retyping a previously entered value, the user can simply select the value from this list. Use the AutoCompleteType property to control the behavior of the AutoComplete feature for a RadInput control. The System.Web.UI.WebControls.AutoCompleteType enumeration is used to represent the values that you can apply to the AutoCompleteType property. Not all browsers support the AutoComplete feature. Check with your browser to determine compatibility.By default, the AutoCompleteType property for a RadInput control is set to AutoCompleteType.None. With this setting, the RadInput control shares the list with other RadInput controls with the same ID property across different pages. You can also share a list between RadInput controls based on a category, instead of an ID property. When you set the AutoCompleteType property to one of the category values (such as AutoCompleteType.FirstName, AutoCompleteType.LastName, and so on), all RadInput controls with the same category share the same list. You can disable the AutoComplete feature for a RadInput control by setting the AutoCompleteType property to AutoCompleteType.Disabled.Refer to your browser documentation for details on configuring and enabling the AutoComplete feature. For example, to enable the AutoComplete feature in Internet Explorer version 5 or later, select Internet Options from the Tools menu, and then select the Content tab. Click the AutoComplete button to view and modify the various browser options for the AutoComplete feature.This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes.

Gets or sets a value indicating whether validation is performed when the RadInput control is set to validate when a postback occurs.

Remarks

Use the CausesValidation property to determine whether validation is performed on both the client and the server when a RadInput control is set to validate when a postback occurs. Page validation determines whether the input controls associated with a validation control on the page all pass the validation rules specified by the validation control.By default, a RadInput control does not cause page validation when the control loses focus. To set the RadInput control to validate when a postback occurs, set the CausesValidation property to true and the AutoPostBack property to true.When the value of the CausesValidation property is set to true, you can also use the ValidationGroup property to specify the name of the validation group for which the RadInput control causes validation.This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes.

For example, if you specify a red font for the EnabledStyle property, all other style properties in the RadInput control will also have a red font. This allows you to provide a common appearance for the control by setting a single style property. You can override the inherited style settings for an item style property that is higher in the hierarchy by setting its style properties. For example, you can specify a blue font for the DisabledStyle property, overriding the red font specified in the EnabledStyle property.To specify a custom style, place the tags between the opening and closing tags of the RadInput control.
