The main idea of the SingleInputRendering is to optimize the RadControl rendering and Client-Side API. By using this mode only two main HTML elements are rendered on the page, instead of two or three (depending on the specific RadInput) which are rendered in the non-single mode of the RadInput controls.
The two main HTML elements of the RadInput in single input rendering mode are:
- The input element in which the user types and submits.
- Span element over the input that holds formatted and empty messages when needed.
When the input is not focused these two elements are visible in the same time. Therefore, we should hide the text in the input with colour transparent and the original colour is set to the span element.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if other questions or problems arise.
