    When I add some client event to TreeList like;
        <ClientEvents OnItemSelected="OnClientNodeClicked" OnItemDeselected="OnClientNodeClicked" />

    I am having this error msg;
    Microsoft JScript runtime error: Sys.InvalidOperationException: 'ıtemDeselected' is not an event.

    If you pay attention to event name it is "ıtemDeselected", first letter is ı (in Turkish small capital of I, dot-less i ). So when regional setting is set to Turkish, lowering "I" becomes "ı" then this exception is occured. To repro this behavior change your regional setting to Turkish from control panel (not UI culture from web.config) and test it. I hope you can fix it as soon as possible.

    FYI and TIA.

    Hi Barbaros,

    Indeed the described problem can be observed when the language format of the computer is set to Turkish. It seems that the web developer server of Visual Studio parses the eventName to the current culture language, therefore the function name has a turkish letter.

    However, you have a several options to overcome this behaviour: 
     1) Set CurrentCulture of the application to "en-US" as shown below:
    protected override void InitializeCulture()
        System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US");

    2) Another possible solution is to attach the client side events of the TreeList on pageLoad using the following code:
    function pageLoad() {
        var treeList = $find("<%= RadTreeList1.ClientID %>");

    3) Additionally, if you run the application on the local IIS server you will also be able to resolve the problem.
