Hi Fatima,

I suppose you want to clear the RadCombobox text. Here is the sample code that I tried.

JS:
function OnClientLoad(sender, args)
{
  sender.set_text("");
}

Thanks,
Princy.

Hello Fatima,

When you use RadComboBox CheckBoxes feature - the text of the control displays the texts of the checked items.
If you want to clear the text in the RadComboBox - the proper approach is to "uncheck" the checked items programmatically by setting the Checked property of each item to "false".

foreach (RadComboBoxItem item in RadComboBox1.CheckedItems)
{
    item.Checked = false;
}

Hi Kalina

Thanks for your reply, but I want that CheckBoxes have mark (if user wants)

But I need to clear it's text, because I want display RadAjaxLodingPanel in it during it's post-back. I did it but the text of ComboBox is ugly and LoadingPanel is not appear correctly.

Thanks

Hi Fatima,

I am afraid that the checked items texts are always displayed in RadComboBox input .
This is a behaviour by design - simply the RadComboBox shows which items are checked.

If you want to clear the text in the input - you should uncheck the checked items.
cleared automatically.

Hi Kalina Kalin
Many thanks of you. Your solution was worked for me; I use it when I want to clear its text.
(but I must return its status to primary state after it)

foreach (RadComboBoxItem item in RadComboBox1.CheckedItems)
{
    item.Checked = false;
}

I want the checked items to remain checked. I just want to build my own display text string to show instead of 2 checked etc.
How do I override your default checkeditems text function?

You should add an option to use the text property instead.

Hi,

One approach is that you can customize the default CheckedItem string by using ItemsCheckedString property of RadComboBox as follows.

ASPX:
<Localization ItemsCheckedString="Checked" />

Another approach is that you can set the text for RadComboBox from ClientSide as follows.

ASPX:
<telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server"  DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"
    DataTextField="Name" OnClientDropDownClosing="OnClientDropDownClosing1" CheckBoxes="true" >
</telerik:RadComboBox>

JavaScript:
<script type="text/javascript">
    function OnClientDropDownClosing1(sender, args) {
        sender.set_text("Updated");
    }
</script>

Thanks,
Shinu.

Thanks! But how can I pass a string defined on the server-side to it. I want to create a string on page load to place in the text field.

Hi,

As a  work around please try the following code snippet which works fine at my end.

ASPX:
<telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true" CheckBoxes="true"
    OnItemChecked="RadComboBox1_ItemChecked">
    <Items>
        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="Item1" />
        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="Item2" />
        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="Item3" />
    </Items>
</telerik:RadComboBox>

C#:
string test = string.Empty;
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    //assign value to test variable
        test = "demo";
}
protected void RadComboBox1_ItemChecked(object sender, RadComboBoxItemEventArgs e)
{
    //passing the value to client side
    string script = "function f(){setValue('"+test+"'); Sys.Application.remove_load(f);}Sys.Application.add_load(f);";
    ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Page, Page.GetType(), "key", script, true); 
}

JavaScript:
<script type="text/javascript">
    function setValue(text) {
        var combo = $find("<%=RadComboBox1.ClientID %>");
        combo.set_text(text);
    }
</script>

Thanks,
Shinu.
