Hi, all.

We have a couple of requests from customers to do something and make RadComboBox working when javascript is disabled. And we did it. We implemented a new AccessibilityMode property which will render noscript tag containing a select html element. This will make the combobox control usable even if the javascript of the browser is disabled.

Yes, it will be displayed like an usual drop down list but still it will be RadComboBox on the server.

The following RadComboBox definition :

<telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server" Width="250px" ForeColor="Green"
AccessibilityMode="True" OnSelectedIndexChanged="RadComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged"
<telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="RadComboBoxItem1" Value="RadComboBoxItem1" ForeColor="green"/>
<telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="RadComboBoxItem2" Value="RadComboBoxItem2" ForeColor="green"/>
<telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="RadComboBoxItem3" Value="RadComboBoxItem3" ForeColor="green"/>
<telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="RadComboBoxItem4" Value="RadComboBoxItem4" ForeColor="green"/>
<telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="RadComboBoxItem5" Value="RadComboBoxItem5" ForeColor="green"/>
<CollapseAnimation Duration="200" Type="OutQuint" />

will return this result with enabled javascript:


and this with disabled javascript:



This feature will be released in the upcoming Q3 beta release. Stay tuned to see what else we have prepared for you.
