Hi,

I am trying to create a variable number of autocompletebox from JavaScript.

I found some code on your forum about how to do it with a RadSlider and tried to adapt it.

Unfortunatly that failed...

This is what I did:

var id = 'multiHolder_' + nameIndex;
var boxProps = {
    _id : id,
    Enabled : "false",
    EmptyMessage : "",
    AllowCustomEntry : "false",
    InputType: "Token",
    _skin: "Default",
    _width: "475px"
}
var boxEvents = {}; // No events
$create(Telerik.Web.UI.RadAutoCompleteBox, boxProps, boxEvents, null, holdingCell);

When the javascript runs I get the following error:

 

Unhandled exception at line 4278, column 1 in http://localhost:60713/Telerik.Web.UI.WebResource.axd?_TSM_HiddenField_=RadScriptManager1_TSM&compress=1&_TSM_CombinedScripts_=;;System.Web.Extensions,+Version=4.0.0.0,+Culture=neutral,+PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35:en-US:47de63c8-89d4-489c-bfde-4185a11627a3:ea597d4b:b25378d2;Telerik.Web.UI,+Version=2015.1.401.45,+Culture=neutral,+PublicKeyToken=121fae78165ba3d4:en-US:4f93cdea-660e-49e9-b57d-168c603f1b46:16e4e7cd:f7645509:24ee1bba:6d43f6d9:874f8ea2:c128760b:88144a7a:1e771326:f9b9258:78b9daca
 
0x800a138f - JavaScript runtime error: Unable to get property 'children' of undefined or null reference

This is a really urgent matter for us.

We would really prefer to be able to create the AutoCompleteBox dynamically rather than having a bunch of predefined one that we show/hide on the fly...

Hi,

Unfortunately the desired scenario is not supported by RadAutoCompleteBox. You may consider using Kendo Autocomplete instead.
