The client-side ValueChanging event is raised just before the RadProgressBar value property is changed. You can handle this event in case you want to prevent the current value from changing. This article discusses the objects of the control's ValueChanging event and shows an example of how to retrieve properties when the event occurs (Example 1).

To handle this event, simply write a JavaScript function that can be called when the event occurs. Then assign the name of this function as the value of the the OnValueChanging property in the control's ClientEvents subtag.

The client-side OnValueChanging event handler receives two arguments:

  1. Sender—the RadProgressBar object that fired the event.

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

    Table 1: OnValueChanging Event Arguments Object

    Name Parameters Return Type Description
    get_cancel() Boolean Gets a value that indicates whether the event is cancelled.
    get_value() Numeric Returns the current progress value. Undefined means indeterminate state.
    set_cancel(value) Boolean Sets whether the event will be cancelled (if true is passed).
    set_value(value) Numeric, Boolean Sets new progress value to the control. If set to undefined/false or no parameter is passed, the state of the control becomes indeterminate.

Example 1: Handle the RadProgressBar's client-side ValueChanging event.

<telerik:RadProgressBar RenderMode="Lightweight" runat="server" ID="RadProgressBar3" Value="30">
    <ClientEvents OnValueChanging="onValueChanging" />
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Change Value" OnClientClick="updateValue(); return false;" />

    function updateValue() {
    function onValueChanging(sender, args) {
        alert("The value of a ProgressBar with ID " + sender.get_id() + " is about to be changed. Its current value is " + sender.get_value() +
            ", while the new one will be " + args.get_value() + ".");
        args.set_cancel() //cancel the event
