The OnClientDropDownItemDataBound client-side event occurs for each item that is created during a request to a Web service.

The event handler receives two parameters:

  1. An instance of RadAutoCompleteBox firing the event.

  2. An eventArgs parameter containing the following methods:

  • get_item() - returns the client object of the drop-down item.

  • get_dataItem() - returns a reference to the DataItem(AutoCompleteBoxItemData or any other serializable custom object) that the current drop-down item is bound to.

<script type="text/javascript">
    function dropDownItemDataBound(sender, args) {
        alert("Item with Text='" + args.get_item().get_text() + "' has just been bound.");
<telerik:RadAutoCompleteBox RenderMode="Lightweight" runat="server" ID="RadAutoCompleteBox1" OnClientDropDownItemDataBound="dropDownItemDataBound">
    <WebServiceSettings Path="ClientTemplates.aspx" Method="GetChildren" />
