    I am trying to toggle the visibility of a searchbox on my page using a button.
    but for some reason the searchbox never disappear.

        OnClientClick="Search_Click()" />
        <DropDownSettings Height="400" Width="300" />
        <WebServiceSettings Path="Main.aspx" Method="GetResults" />
    <script type='text/javascript'>
        function Search_Click() {
        function toggle_visibility(id) {
            var e = document.getElementById(id);
            if (e.style.display == 'block')
                e.style.display = 'none';
                e.style.display = 'block';

    From the code behind if I change the Visibility, it works.
    But I do not want to do this from the code behind. I need to do it from client-side javascript.

    You could use the following implementation of the toggle_visibility function:
    function toggle_visibility(id) {
       $telerik.$("#"+ id).toggle();

    Even with your code I could not get it to work, so I investigated the page behaviour instead.
    In the end I had to switch from the asp:ImageButton to a simple 'img' with a 'onclick' because what happened was that the ImageButton was doing a postback and thus cancelling the visilibity toggle.

    Thanks for your help.
