    I have a RadListbox (single select mode) and a button which deselects all items in the RadListbox using clearSelection() in javascript.  This appears to work, until there is a postback at which point the item is selected again.

    Here is some example code which exhibits this problem (p_Postback_Click is just an empty event handler to cause a postback):

    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="TestClearSelection.aspx.cs" Inherits="TestClearSelection" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
    <head runat="server">
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <script type="text/javascript">
            function ClearListbox() {
                lb = $find("RadListBox1");
        <ajax:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" EnablePageMethods="true"></ajax:ScriptManager>
            <telerik:RadListBox ID="RadListBox1" runat="server">
                    <telerik:RadListBoxItem Text="Item 1" />
                    <telerik:RadListBoxItem Text="Item 2" />
                    <telerik:RadListBoxItem Text="Item 3" />
            <asp:Button ID="b_ClearSelection" runat="server" Text="Clear Selection" onclientclick="ClearListbox(); return false;" />
            <asp:Button ID="b_PostBack" runat="server" Text="Postback"
                onclick="b_PostBack_Click" />
    Is this a bug, or am I just missing something else that I need to do?  I've seen trackChanges and commitChanges in the documentation but these seem to be needed only when adding or deleting ListItems clientside.

    Hello Andrew,

    Try the following JavaScript to persist clear selection on postback.
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function ClearListbox()
     lb = $find("RadListBox1");
