The OnToolClick client-side event fires when an tool button from the chat toolbar is clicked. Equals to the toolClick 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_button() - the DOM element of the button clicked;
    2. args.get_name() - the name of the clicked tool button;
    3. get_messageBox() - the input element of the messageBox;
    4. get_sender() - the Kendo UI Chat widget instance which fired the event;
<script type="text/javascript">
    function onToolClick(sender, args) {
        var chat = sender;
        var button = args.get_button();
<telerik:RadChat runat="server" ID="RadChat1">
            <telerik:ChatToolbarButton Text="ButtonA" name="ButtonA" IconClass="t-icon t-i-gear"/>
    <ClientEvents OnToolClick="onToolClick" />
