I need to change the maxlength clientside in a RadTextBox depending on a selection in a combobox.  I tried this:

 

var txt = $find("<%= txtValue.ClientID %>");

 

 

var item = eventArgs.get_item();

 

 

var value = item.get_value();

 

 

switch(value)

 

{

 

case "CUST_NU":

 

txt.MaxLength = 8;

 

break;

 

 

case "NAME":

 

txt.MaxLength = 30;

 

break;

 

 

case "CIC":

 

txt.MaxLength = 4;

 

break;

 

 

case "INVOICE_NU":

 

txt.MaxLength = 10;

 

break;

 

}

Then checked for the maxlength via alert(txt.MaxLength) and it shows the new maxlength value but the textbox still doesn't change to the new length.

Hi Tina,

Try the client side method set_maxLength() for setting the Maxlength of RadComboBox.

JavaScript:
<script type="text/javascript"
function OnClientSelectedIndexChanged(sender, eventArgs) 
    var txt = $find("<%= txtValue.ClientID %>"); 
    var item = eventArgs.get_item(); 
    var value = item.get_value(); 
    switch(value) 
    { 
        case "CUST_NU"
            txt.set_maxLength(8); 
        break
        case "NAME"
            txt.set_maxLength(30); 
        break
        case "CIC"
            txt.set_maxLength(4); 
        break;         
    } 
</script> 

Thanks,
Shinu.

Thanks Shinu.  Don't know how I missed the set_maxLength function.  Too many long programming days:).  Thanks again for your help.

Hi,

 I am having the same issue. I need to calculate the maxlength of my textbox based on another control on the page.

I've tried explicitely setting the maxlenth using : attr('maxlength', maxlength);

But it doesnt work, it updates the value, but when i click anywhere on the page or click on the textbox it gets reset. So I need a way of persisting this value?

set_maxLength() also doesnt seem to work, as it doesnt affect the maxlength at all.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Heinrich,

Currently, the set_maxLength() method takes effect when TextMode is set to MultiLine. Please try the following approach instead:
<telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server" OnClientSelectedIndexChanged="indexChanged">
    <Items>
        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Two" Value="2" />
        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Three" Value="3" />
        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Four" Value="4" />
    </Items>
</telerik:RadComboBox>
  JavaScript:
function indexChanged(sender, args) {
    var textBox = $find("<%= RadTextBox1.ClientID %>");
    textBox.get_element().maxLength = args.get_item().get_value();
}

I hope this will prove helpful. Please give it a try and let me know about the result.

Kind regards,
