The OnClientItemClicking event occurs when an item of the RadTagCloud control is clicked, immediately after the mouse button is released. The event is fired before the client-side validation occurs, and can be canceled

The event handler receives two parameters:

  1. Sender–the TagCould object that fired the event.

  2. Event arguments–event arguments object of type Telerik.Web.UI.RadTagCloudEventArgs, that exposes the following properties and methods:

Name Parameters Return Type Description
get_item RadTagCloudItem Returns the client-side object of the clicked item.
get_cancel Bool Returns a bool value that indicates whether the event was canceled. True means the event is canceled.
set_cancel bool Sets a bool value that indicates whether the event will be canceled. Setting true means the event will be canceled.

Example 1: Shows how you can use the OnClientItemClicking event to cancel the OnClientClicked event firing upon programmatic rule.

<telerik:RadTagCloud RenderMode="Lightweight" runat="server" ID="RadTagCloud1" 
    OnClientItemClicking="OnClientItemClicking" OnClientItemClicked="OnClientItemClicked">
        <telerik:RadTagCloudItem Text="Item 1" />
        <telerik:RadTagCloudItem Text="Item 2" />

<script type="text/javascript">
    function OnClientItemClicking(sender, args) {
        var item = args.get_item();
        var text = item.get_text();
        var proceedToClicked = !confirm("You clicked on Item with text \"" + text + "\".\nContinue?")
        // Note, argument value of true will prevent the further execution of the clicked event

    function OnClientItemClicked(sender, args) {
        var item = args.get_item();
        var text = item.get_text();

        alert("Item with text \"" + text + "\" was clicked!");
