I'm using the radbutton as replacement for radio and checkboxes on a web kiosk application.
I need to do a lot of client side functionallity with them but the documentation is not that good.
I need to be able to get the count of the selected checkboxes, I need to know if there is at least one radiobutton or checkbox selected, I need to be able to uncheck checkboxes if you click an specific one (mutually exclusive), etc.
All this is easily achievable using jQuery and standard radio and checkbox controls.
Could you point me in the right direction on how to achieve this using the radbutton.
I'm using custom toggle by the way.

Thanks,

Pablo Tola.

Hi Pablo,

There is no built-in client-side functionality, that will enable you to get the count of all selected checkboxes on the page, or determine whether at least one radio is checked, but it can be achieved with the existing client-side API of the RadButton control.
My suggestion is to keep a global array of all checkboxes and radio buttons on the page, and use this array to perform the needed operations. I have created an example that stores all the checked checkboxes and radios in two separate arrays. The arrays are populated on the load event of every button, and the buttons are removed/added when the checkbox, or button changes its changed state. You can find the code pasted below.
If you want a mutually exclusive checkboxes, I would suggest using RadButton with ToggleType="Radio" and ButtonType="ToggleButton", and adding two ToggleStates with the CssClasses for the Radio button set as PrimaryIconCssClass. An example is provided below.

too complicated, I took another route:

var checked = $(".RadButton").filter(function (index) {

 

 

    return $find(this.id).get_checked();
    }).length;

Thanks.
