    r.a.d.toolbar version


    .NET version


    Visual Studio version


    programming language


    browser support

    all browsers supported by r.a.d.toolbar


    As the title suggests, this project shows how to access controls that are nested in template buttons of a r.a.d.toolbar web user control. The toolbar has two template buttons, but we use only one of them for this demo. A label's Text property takes the value of the Text property of a nested textbox.

    I use the FindControl method consecutively and indexing of the TemplatedButtons collection to reach the nested textbox.

    I"m finding the controls fine but the value of my dropdownlist is always -1

    DropDownList m_IssuePurposeTypeDropDown = (DropDownList)GetWOTemplateButton().FindControl("m_IssuePurposeTypeDropDown");

    private RadToolbarTemplateButton GetWOTemplateButton()


    RadToolbarTemplateButton m_WOButton = (RadToolbarTemplateButton)this.m_LocationServiceRadToolbar.Items.TemplatedButtons[1];

    return m_WOButton;
