The OnClientClicked event is raised after a Tile is clicked and therefore after the OnClientClicking event and before the server-side OnClick event. It is not cancellable. If the OnClientClicking event is cancelled it will not be fired.

This event can be used to monitor navigation and postbacks and obtain information for the tile that is clicked. If AutoPostBack is true navigation will not be performed.

The original URL of the tile and the current one can be obtained through the event arguments object, because the URL the browser will navigate to can be changed dynamically in the OnClientClicking event.

The event handler receives two arguments:

  1. the Tile object that fired the event

  2. an event arguments object that exposes the following methods

OnClientClicked event arguments object

Name Return type Arguments Description
get_cancel() bool Gets a value that indicates whether the event is cancelled.
get_newValue() string Gets the current URL the tile will navigate to. It could have been changed dynamically in the OnClientClicking event.
get_oldValue() string Gets the original NavigateUrl of the clicked tile. It can be used to compare the current and original values.
set_cancel(value) bool Sets whether the event will be cancelled (if true is passed).

The following example shows how to get and set the navigateURL property of a Tile in the OnClientClicked event.

<telerik:RadTextTile ID="Tile1" runat="server" Name="Sample Text Tile" Text="Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet" Title-Text="Sample"

<script type="text/javascript">
    function OnClientClicked(tile, args) {
        var url = args.get_oldValue();

        //confirm navigation if url has been specified
        if (url != "") {
            confirm(String.format('Page will navigate to {0}', url));
            //request navigation url to be set
        else {
            tile.set_navigateUrl(prompt("No url specified. Please enter a navigation url:"));

The code snippet below shows how to use the OnClientClicked event to check if the navigation URL of a Tile has been set to a new value.

<telerik:RadTextTile ID="Tile1" runat="server" Name="Sample Text Tile" Text="Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet" Title-Text="Sample"
    OnClientClicking="OnClientClicking" OnClientClicked="OnClientClicked" NavigateUrl="http://demos.telerik.com">

<script type="text/javascript">
    function OnClientClicking(tile, args) {
        alert("New Navigation URL set to \'http//:www.telerik.com\'.");

    function OnClientClicked(tile, args) {
        var oldValue = args.get_oldValue();
        var newValue = args.get_newValue();
        if (oldValue != newValue) {
            alert(String.format("Navigation URL changed from \'{0}\' to \'{1}\'.", oldValue, newValue));
