    I am attempting to add RadToolBarbuttons to a RadToolBar I have defined in my aspx file.

    I am adding the elements successfully after creating them with the following server side code.



    rtb = new RadToolBarButton();


    rtb.Group = sGroup;

    rtb.CheckOnClick =




    rtb.Checked =




    rtb.PostBack =




    rtb.ImageUrl = sImageUrl;

    rtb.Value = sValue;

    rtb.ToolTip = sToolTip;

    I add the rtb object, actually more than one, to my RadToolBar.


    They all appear correctly in my UI.

    However as soon as I mouse over them I get an exception.

    I noticed the rendered html is different from an in-line RadToolBarButton.

    The dynamically created buttons don't have _item["object Object"] or _itemTypeName["Telerik.Web.UI.RadToolBarButton"] attributes.

    What am I missing?

    Hi Tim,

    The problem you are experiencing is due to the fact that you are adding one and the same instance of the RadToolBarButton class.

    If you want to have multiple buttons then you should create multiple instances and add them to the RadToolBar.

    Please refer to the following help article giving information how to work with RadToolBar's items on the server-side.

    All the best,
