Thanks for looking at this, sadly, I don't think that's going to help me.
I'll try explaining the situation a bit better.
I have a UserControl. The UserControl contains a RadGrid and the RadGrid has a CommandItem Template that includes a RadToolBar.
I need to access one or more of the buttons in the RadToolBar when the user clicks on a row in the grid.
//gridCommandItem is a variable that I populate during the
// RadToolBar's OnClientLoad event
buttons = gridCommandItem.get_items();
in this specific case, however, I have multiple instances of my UserControl on the page, so, ideally, what I'd like to do is something like this...
commandItem = sender.get_someCleverMethodThatAllowsMeToAccessTheComamndItem()
toolbar = $telerik.findControl(commandItem,
buttons = toolbar.get_items();
Does that make any clearer what it is I'm trying to do?
