Getting Started with the Telerik WebForms Button

The following tutorial demonstrates how to set up a page with a RadButton control and attach its OnClick server event:

  1. In the default page of a new ASP.NET AJAX-enabled Web Application add a RadButton control:


    <telerik:RadButton RenderMode="Lightweight" id="RadButton1" runat="server" text="My Button">

    The Text property specifies the text displayed in the RadButton control.

  2. To hook to the OnClick server-side event of RadButton switch to Design view of Visual Studio and double click on the button. This operation will insert the following function in the code behind file:


    protected void RadButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)


    Protected Sub RadButton1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    End Sub

    as well as add OnClick="RadButton1_Click" to the RadButton's declaration.In the Click event handler add the code that you want to be executed when the RadButton control is clicked.
