The OnClientLoad client-side event occurs after the combobox has been fully initialized on the client-side.

The event handler receives one parameter:

  1. The combobox instance firing the event.

This event is helpful if you need to get the client-side instance of the combobox when it is embedded in other controls. Hook the OnClientLoad event and get the client-side instance of the combobox as demonstrated in the example below. This technique can be used to retrieve the combo instance for use elsewhere.

function OnClientLoadHandler(sender)   {
    var combo;

<telerik:RadComboBox RenderMode="Lightweight" 
    OnClientLoad="OnClientLoadHandler" .../>

This technique may not work when AJAX is used. The asynchronous requests may interfere with the OnClientLoad event.

This event cannot be cancelled.
