    Can anyone tell me why I can't find any control inside an RadToolBarButton ItemTemplate besides a Telerik Control?

    Here is my markup.
            <telerik:RadToolBarButton runat="server" Group="Filtering" Text="Filter Options" Value="Filter Options">  
                    <div style="
                    padding-left:10px; padding-right:10px; padding-top:8px;">  
                        <asp:Label ID="lblFilterName" runat="server" Text="Filter: "></asp:Label>  
                            EmptyMessage="[Enter a Filter Name...]" AutoPostBack="False" OnClientKeyPressing="clientKeyPressing"></telerik:RadComboBox>  
                        <asp:ImageButton ID="btnRun" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/Images/Regular/16x16/Symbol Green/Symbol Green Play.png" ToolTip="Run the grid filter now." />  
                        <asp:ImageButton ID="btnSave" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/Images/Disabled/16x16/Symbol Green/Symbol Green Configuration.png" ToolTip="Save Filter: enter a filter name in the textbox to enable this button." />  
                        <asp:ImageButton ID="btnDelete" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/Images/Disabled/16x16/Symbol Green/Symbol Green Delete.png" ToolTip="Delete Filter: select a filter from the dropdown list to enable this button." />  

    Here is my JavaScript Code.  The only control it finds is the RadComboBox
        function clientKeyPressing(sender) {  
            var txt = sender.get_text();  
            var toolbar1 = $find("<%= RadToolBar1.ClientID %>");  
            var filterbutton1 = toolbar1.findItemByValue("Filter Options");  
            var btnRun = filterbutton1.findControl("btnRun");  
            var btnSave = filterbutton1.findControl("btnSave");  
            var btnDelete = filterbutton1.findControl("btnDelete");  
            var combo = filterbutton1.findControl("comboFilterList");

    Hello Richard,

    Indeed the findControl method returns only ASP.NET Ajax controls. To find an html element you can use this code:

    var btnRun = $telerik.findElement(filterbutton1.get_element(), "btnRun");
