Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.
The RadDropDownList controls rendering differs from the standard html select. Therefore, we recommend the usage of the Client API
of the control, where you could observe the for changing the selection of the control you could use the set_text()
method (or get a reference to a specific item and use set_selected()
) and for capturing a change of the value - you could use the OnClientSelectedIndexChanged
Hope this information helps. I will be glad to assist you any further.
