Using RadConfirm to confirm item change in RadComboBox

## HOW-TO Use RadConfirm to confirm item change in RadComboBox. The example will fire the server side "SelectedIndexChanged" event also.

## SOLUTION Hook on the OnClientSelectedIndexChanging event of the ComboBox and invoke the radconfirm. Since radconfirm is a non-blocking control we cancel the OnClientSelectedIndexChanging event. Then in the callback function of the radconfirm we select the item if the user has clicked on the OK button.

<telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1"
OnClientSelectedIndexChanging="onClientSelectedIndexChanging" OnSelectedIndexChanged="RadComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged"> <Items> <telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="RadComboBoxItem1" /> <telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="RadComboBoxItem2" /> <telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="RadComboBoxItem3" /> <telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="RadComboBoxItem4" /> </Items> </telerik:RadComboBox> <telerik:RadWindowManager ID="RadWindowManager1" runat="server"> </telerik:RadWindowManager>

<script type="text/javascript"> var showConfirm = 1;

function onClientSelectedIndexChanging(combo, eventArgs) {
var callBackFn = function (arg) { if (arg == true && showConfirm == 1) { combo.clearSelection(); var item = eventArgs.get_item();

        //prevent entering the same part after calling the select() method 
        showConfirm = 0; 
        //fire the server-side SelectedIndexChanged event 
        __doPostBack("RadComboBox1" , '{\"Command\":\"Select\"}'); 

        //now we can show the confirm again 
        showConfirm = 1; 

if (showConfirm == 1) 
    radconfirm('Are you sure you want to change the item?', callBackFn); 

//do not change the combo item until clicked on OK button of radconfirm
