    So I've written some javascript code that should display a button when the listbox's OnClientTransferred event fires. It works fine in Chrome and Firefox but not IE (big surprise). I am using an asp:update panel so I'll post THE JavaScript and all of the relevant markup in case that matters.

    function showButton(){
         var btn = document.getElementById('<%=btnClientCont.ClientID%>');
         btn.style.display = "inherit";

    and the markup

    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="updatepanel" runat="server"><ContentTemplate>
    <telerik:RadListBox runat="server" ID="lstBox" OnClientTransferred="showButton">
    <tr><td><asp:Button ID="btnReset" OnClick="rebindAll"/></td></tr>
    </ContentTemplate><Triggers><asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="btnReset" EventName="Click"/>
    <asp:PostBackTrigger ControlID="btnClientCont"/></Triggers></asp:UpdatePanel></div>
    <div><input type="submit" runat="server" onservercick="btnContinue_Click" id="btnClientCont"/></div>

    Again, this works in both Chrome and Firefox, but the button won't appear in IE (tested on both 8 and 9).

    Hi Fred ,

    We noticed in the provided code that this submit button is visible. In order to make it invisible you should add the following style in it's declaration:

    Once the submit button is invisible upon the page load, you should modify your showButton javascript function in the following way:

    function showButton() {
        var btn = document.getElementById('<%=btnClientCont.ClientID%>');
        btn.style.display = "block";
        btn.style.visibility = "visible";

    This approach has been tested both in IE8 and IE7.

    All the best,
