The OnActionClick client-side event fires when an action button is clicked inside an attachment template, or when a suggestedAction is clicked. Equal to the actionClick event of the underlying Kendo UI Chat widget.

The event handler receives two parameters:

  1. The Chat instance firing the event.
  2. An object with the following methods:
    1. get_text() - the text value of the clicked action button;
    2. get_sender() - the Kendo UI Chat widget instance which fired the event;
<script type="text/javascript">
    function оnActionClick(sender, args) {
        var chat = sender;
        var text = args.get_text();
<telerik:RadChat runat="server" ID="RadChat1">
    <ClientEvents OnActionClick="оnActionClick" />
