The OnMonthSelected client-side event handler is called immediately after a user select a month cell in the MonthYearView.

The event handler receives two arguments:

  1. the RadMonthYearPicker object that fired the event.

  2. an event arguments object that exposes the following methods:OnMonthSelected event arguments object

Name Return Type Arguments Description
get_newDate() Date object Returns the new value of the control as a Date object.
get_oldDate() Date object Returns the old value of the control as a Date object.
get_selectedCell() HTML element Returns the DOM element for the cell that was clicked.

The following example uses the OnMonthSelected event to display the previous and the new selected month:

<telerik:RadMonthYearPicker RenderMode="Lightweight" ID="RadMonthYearPicker1" runat="server">
    <ClientEvents OnMonthSelected="onMonthSelected"  />
function onMonthSelected(sender, eventArgs) {
    var newMonth = eventArgs.get_newDate().getMonth();
    var oldMonth = eventArgs.get_oldDate().getMonth();

    alert("The old selected month was: " + oldMonth + ", and the new selected month is: " + newMonth);
