    Migrating OnClientClick handlers from ASP button to Telerik’s ASP.NET AJAX Button

    Let’s start with some background – a common need is for a button to execute some JavaScript code in order to create a more responsive page. With the standard ASP:Button the OnClientClick is used to specify this execution statement. Take the following simple example: <script type="text/javascript">     function ButtonClick(button) {         alert("The Button with ID " + button.id + " was clicked.");     } </script> <asp:Button ID="Button1" Text="Regular Button" OnClientClick="ButtonClick(this); return false;" runat="server" />   What you can see here is a function called with parentheses, an argument provided to the function and the return false; statement that prevents the postback.

    First Look at RadButton for ASP.NET AJAX!

    October 26, 2010 Share
    We will extend our ASP.NET AJAX suite in Q3 2010 with a new control. The component is called RadButton -a fully customizable button control that allows you to build complex forms and easily manage the user input. The standard ASP.NET button controls (Button, RadioButton, CheckBox) can be easily replaced by the RadButton control, since most of their functionality is provided by our control, and is configured by the same or similar(intuitive) properties. On top of that we offer many additional features. Here are some of RadButton's key features: Rich client-side functionality - Many of the server properties are exposed on the client,...
