    Hi All,
              Im using my Login Button inside the RadDock and i can't set the defaultbutton property of my page's form tag.Also i cant get my controls in script which is inside RadDock.I solved it by getting the clientID of btLogin .

      (ie):document.getElementById("<%=btLogin.ClientID %>")

    and same problem might have been occured with defaultbutton .Here is my design.

     <form id="form1" runat="server" defaultbutton="btLogin">
    <telerik:RadDockZone ID="rdzLogin" runat="server" Width="100%" Height="350px">
             <telerik:RadDock ID="rdLogin" Title="<b>Login</b>" runat="server" EnableAnimation="true"
                 DefaultCommands="None" EnableDrag="false" Skin="Default" EnableRoundedCorners="true">
                       <asp:Button ID="btLogin" runat="server" Login" OnClick="btLogin_Click" />

    I get the following error while setting defaultbutton in form tag itself and when i remove it no problem occurs :

    The DefaultButton of 'form1' must be the ID of a control of type IButtonControl.

    Can i set defaultbutton from code behind? Please Help me out...

    Regards and Thanks,

    Hi Titti,

    The RadDock is an INamingContainer, which means that the form of the page and the button control in the dock will not be in the same INamingContainer, and the form cannot find the button set as DefaultButton. That's why you should pass the UniqueID of the button the the DefaultButton property, in the code behind, i.e.:

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        form1.DefaultButton = btLogin.UniqueID;
