    Hi All:
    Here is my problem.
    I need to change the selected item in a panel bar at run time.
    I am using the following code to achieve this.. (hapenning on ajax request)
    Protected Sub RadAjaxManager1_AjaxRequest(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Telerik.Web.UI.AjaxRequestEventArgs) Handles RadAjaxManager1.AjaxRequest
          If hdnMenu.Value = "6" Then
              If (e.Argument.StartsWith("ListesGroupes")) Then
                  If e.Argument.ToString.Split("$")(1) = "1" Then
                     //do something
                     // reset the panel bar
                      Dim myItem As RadPanelItem = DirectCast(RadPanelBar1.FindItemByText("Mes alertes"), RadPanelItem)
                      myItem.Selected = True
                  End If
              End If
      End Sub

    However, the selected is not changing. My page consist of 2 content place holders with a master. I am not using a radajaxmanager in my master/ proxy in child in this case as the application was already built when I took over and am just doing support.

    So this page contains
    1. Content place holder 1
    a. this contains the PanelBar which is named RadPanelBar1
    <asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1" runat="Server">
        <telerik:RadPanelBar runat="server" ID="RadPanelBar1"
            Width="100%" Height="100%"  PersistStateInCookie="false"  OnClientItemClicking="OnClientItemClicking" EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" Skin="IroiseSkin">
                <telerik:RadPanelItem Text="Agendas"  Value="AGENDA"  Expanded="true"   PreventCollapse="true">
                            <telerik:RadPanelItem ImageUrl="../Images/flyout_arrow.gif" Text="Mes RDV" NavigateUrl="" PostBack="false" Value = "AGENDA.RDV"   Selected="true" />
                            <telerik:RadPanelItem ImageUrl="../Images/flyout_arrow.gif" Text="Mes mémos"  NavigateUrl="" PostBack="false" Value = "AGENDA.MEMO" />
                            <telerik:RadPanelItem ImageUrl="../Images/flyout_arrow.gif" Text="Mes tâches" NavigateUrl="" PostBack="false" Value = "AGENDA.TACHE"  />
                            <telerik:RadPanelItem ImageUrl="../Images/flyout_arrow.gif" Text="Mes alertes" NavigateUrl="" PostBack="false" Value = "AGENDA.ALERT" />
                            <telerik:RadPanelItem ImageUrl="../Images/flyout_arrow.gif" Text="Tout l'agenda" NavigateUrl="" PostBack="false" Value = "AGENDA.TOUT"    />
                            <telerik:RadPanelItem ImageUrl="../Images/flyout_arrow.gif" Text="Agendas groupes" NavigateUrl="" PostBack="false" Value = "AGENDA.GROUPE" />

    2. Content place holder 2
    a. contains the RadAjaxManager + lots of things (radscheduler + radwindows)

    I have been checking till when the changes I make  to the PanelBar, in the above function, remain active and I see that before the RadPanelBar1_PreRender function the changes are still there but after the functions for applything the theme takes over and I lose my changes.

    My idea is that I am doing something wrong in the ajax manager but I am not sure what.
    Please help me in finding the solution to this error.

    Thank you!

    Hello Krishnen,

    Have you set the AjaxManager- AjaxSettings properly?

    The following link will shed some light on setting AjaxSettings in this case.
