    I have implemented a RadTagCloud and I would like to execute javascript code when a user hovers over one of the items in the cloud.

    How can I add the onmouseover attribute to the individual items rendered in the RadTagCloud?

    Hello John,

    To achieve the desired scenario, please handle the load (OnClientLoad property) client-side event of the RadTagCloud, and loop through each tagCloud item to handle the mouse over event. For your convenience I have created a sample project that shows how to do it:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
    <head runat="server">
        <telerik:RadStyleSheetManager ID="RadStyleSheetManager1" runat="server" />
        <script type="text/javascript">
            function OnMouseOver(e)
                // this refers to the current item
                $get("Label1").innerHTML = this.get_text();
            function OnClientLoad(tagCloud, load)
                var items = tagCloud.get_items();
                var length = items.length;
                for (var i = 0; i < length; i++)
                    var item = items[i];
                    //pass the current item so it can be accessed in the handler
                    var mouseDelegate = Function.createDelegate(item, OnMouseOver);
                    $addHandler(item.get_element().firstChild, "mouseover", mouseDelegate);
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
            <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server"></asp:Label>
        <telerik:RadTagCloud ID="TagCloud1" runat="server" Width="400px" OnClientLoad="OnClientLoad">
