Hello,

I have own composite control inherited from RadWebControl. It contains RadTextBox control where I need handle keyup client event.
I have implemented client class for it and I attached event in initialize function. In dispose function I'm removing this event handler but it causes javascript error:

Line: 6
Error: '_events' is null or not an object

Here is the script:

nData.KnowledgeManagement.Web.UI.Searcher.prototype =
{
    initialize: function () {
        nData.KnowledgeManagement.Web.UI.Searcher.callBaseMethod(this, 'initialize');
  
        // SearchTextBox
        this._searchTextBox = $find(this.get_id() + '_searchTextBox');
        this._keyUpDelegate = Function.createDelegate(this, this._keyUp);
        $addHandler(this._searchTextBox._textBoxElement, "keyup", this._keyUpDelegate);
  
        // XmlHttpPanel
        this._xmlHttpPanel = $find(this.get_id() + '_xmlHttpPanel');
        this._xmlHttpPanel._searcher = this;
        this._xmlHttpPanel.add_responseEnding(this._xmlHttpPanelResponseEnding);
        this._xmlHttpPanel.add_responseError(this._clientResponseError);
    },
  
    dispose: function () {
        nData.KnowledgeManagement.Web.UI.Searcher.callBaseMethod(this, 'dispose');
  
        if (this._keyUpDelegate) {
            $removeHandler(this._searchTextBox._textBoxElement, "keyup", this._keyUpDelegate);
            this._keyUpDelegate = null;
        }
  
        this._xmlHttpPanel.remove_responseEnding(this._xmlHttpPanelResponseEnding);
        this._xmlHttpPanel.remove_responseError(this._clientResponseError);
    },
  
    _keyUp: function () {
        this._search(this._searchTextBox._textBoxElement.value);
    },
    ...
}

Cound you tell me what I have wrong?
Thanks
Jiri

Hello Jiri,

I would suggest you to revise the following online resources:

Also note that we do not support inheriting from base RadControl.

Kind regards,

Hello Maria,

thanks for reply. I found that problem is because dispose method on SearchTextBox (RadTextBox) control is called before dispose method on my parent control.
And RadInputControl finishing with "this._textBoxElement._events = null;" code, which causes error during call $removeHandler from my parent control.

So maybe there is better way how to register/unregister handler on RadTextBox control. I need hande keyup event.
Is there something for it? I tried add_keyPress but it is not fire for all changes in textbox.

I need something like:
this._searchTextBox.add_keyUp(this._keyUp);
  ...
this._searchTextBox.remove_keyUp(this._keyUp);

Thank you
Jiri

I got answer in my supprot ticket:
--------------------------------------

Regarding the issue with removing the handler, the $addHandler method accepts fourth Boolean argument, that shows whether the handler should be automatically removed when the element is disposed, so I would recommending passing true, and you would not need to remove it explicitly. This is the way I have done it in your project.
