The event ItemClicked is subsequent to the ItemClicking (OnClientItemClicking) event and occurs when an item of the RadRotator control is clicked. The event is fired after the client-side validation is completed, just before the page is submitted, and cannot be cancelled.

The event handler receives two parameters:

  1. The RadRotator instance that fired the event.

  2. An eventArgs parameter of type Telerik.Web.UI.RadRotatorEventArgs containing the following properties and methods:

    • get_item() - returns the client object of the clicked item.

This event can be used for executing a custom code when an item of the RadRotator is clicked. The example below demonstrates how to show the index of the currently displayed item.

<script type="text/javascript">
    function OnClientItemClicked(sender, eventArgs) {
        var eventLog = $get("eventLog");
        eventLog.innerHTML = "You clicked an item with index " + eventArgs.get_item().get_index();
<telerik:RadRotator RenderMode="Lightweight" ID="RadRotator1" runat="server" ScrollDirection="Left" Height="113px"
    ItemHeight="113px" Width="150px" ItemWidth="150px" OnClientItemClicked="OnClientItemClicked">
        <img src=".........." alt="" />
<div id="eventLog"></div>
