    We have a 3 level radpanel that is built dynamically from a database. At the third level of the radpanel hierarchy we need to add a textbox that we can populate and retrieve data from.

    So for example:

    Employee Salaries
    -- Managers
    ------ John [ textbox ]
    ------ Mary [ textbox ]
    -- Executives
    ------ Harry [textbox ]
    Building Costs
    -- Building 1
    ------ Heat [ textbox ]


    Is there a way to do this?

    Hello Jeff,

    Please find below a sample code snippet that shows the needed approach.

    <html xmlns=""
    <head runat="server"
        <title>Untitled Page</title> 
        <style type="text/css"
            padding-left: 20px !important; 
        <form id="form1" runat="server"
            <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"
            <telerik:RadPanelBar ID="RadPanelBar1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" DataFieldID="id" DataFieldParentID="parentId" DataTextField="Text" OnItemDataBound="RadPanelBar1_ItemDataBound"
                <CollapseAnimation Duration="100" Type="None" /> 
                <ExpandAnimation Duration="100" Type="None" /> 
            <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ConnectionString %>" SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [Links]"></asp:SqlDataSource> 

    using System; 
    using System.Data; 
    using System.Configuration; 
    using System.Collections; 
    using System.Web; 
    using System.Web.Security; 
    using System.Web.UI; 
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls; 
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts; 
    using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls; 
    public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page 
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) 
        protected void RadPanelBar1_ItemDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.RadPanelBarEventArgs e) 
            if (e.Item.Level == 2) 
                Label lb = new Label(); 
                lb.Text = e.Item.Text; 
                TextBox tb = new TextBox(); 
                tb.Text = e.Item.Text; 
                tb.Width = Unit.Pixel(50); 
                e.Item.Text = ""
