Call RadConfirm from code behind


Product Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX


The project demonstrates how to call a RadConfirm from code behind and how to retrieve its response in server side. The RadConfirm is shown by following the similar approach described in the Alert, Confirm and Prompt article, and uses AjaxRequests to pass the result to server.


<telerik:RadAjaxManager ID="RadAjaxManager1" runat="server" OnAjaxRequest="RadAjaxManager1_AjaxRequest">
        <telerik:AjaxSetting AjaxControlID="RadAjaxManager1">
                <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="Label1" />

<telerik:RadWindowManager ID="RadWindowManager1" runat="server" />

<asp:Button ID="Button2" runat="server" Text="Button" OnClick="Button2_Click" />
<br />
<asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text=""></asp:Label>

JavaScript Functions:

  • callConfirm(): This function invokes a Telerik confirmation dialog with the message "Are you sure?" and a callback function confirmCallBackFn.
  • confirmCallBackFn(arg): This function is the callback function for the confirmation dialog. It takes an argument arg, which is either true (if the user confirms) or false (if the user cancels). Depending on the user's choice, it sends an AJAX request to the server using RadAjaxManager1.ajaxRequest().
function callConfirm() {
    radconfirm('Are you sure?', confirmCallBackFn);

function confirmCallBackFn(arg) {
    var ajaxManager = $find("<%=RadAjaxManager1.ClientID%>");

    if (arg) {
    else {

When Button2 is clicked, it registers a startup script to execute callConfirm() function when the page loads. This means the confirmation dialog will appear automatically after the page loads.

protected void Button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    string radalertscript = "<script language='javascript'>function f(){callConfirm(); Sys.Application.remove_load(f);}; Sys.Application.add_load(f);</script>";
    Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "radalert", radalertscript);

protected void RadAjaxManager1_AjaxRequest(object sender, AjaxRequestEventArgs e)
    if (e.Argument.ToString() == "ok")
        Label1.Text = "OK";
        Label1.Text = "Cancel";
Protected Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    Dim radalertscript As String = "<script language='javascript'>function f(){callConfirm(); Sys.Application.remove_load(f);}; Sys.Application.add_load(f);</script>"
    Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.[GetType](), "radalert", radalertscript)
End Sub

Protected Sub RadAjaxManager1_AjaxRequest(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As AjaxRequestEventArgs)
    If e.Argument.ToString() = "ok" Then
        Label1.Text = "OK"
        Label1.Text = "Cancel"
    End If
End Sub
