OnClientPasswordStrengthCalculating is fired when using the password strength check feature and changing the text, before the indicator is updated.

The OnClientPasswordStrengthCalculating event is supported by RadTextBox with TextMode set to Password and for TextBoxSettings created with RadInputManager.

Four properties are exposed through the event arguments:

  • get_passwordText - gets password entered by the user.

  • get_strengthScore - gets calculated password strength.

  • set_strengthScore - sets custom calculated password strength.

  • set_indicatorText - sets the text that will be used in the indicator element instead of the correspondading one from TextStrengthDescriptions.

<telerik:RadTextBox RenderMode="Lightweight" runat="server" ID="RadTextBox1" Text="Enter Password" TextMode="Password">
    <PasswordStrengthSettings ShowIndicator="true" OnClientPasswordStrengthCalculating="CalculatingStrength" />
<script type="text/javascript">
    function CalculatingStrength(sender, args) {
        if (args.get_passwordText() == "Enter Password") {
            //Manually set strength Score depending on the input text.
            args.set_indicatorText("Custom text");
        else {
            var calculatedScore = args.get_strengthScore();
            //Changing the indicator text depending on the calculated score.
            args.set_indicatorText("Score: (" + calculatedScore + "/100)");
