    I am trying to invoke a javascript function on the Pageload event and get the object of the comboox in that function. But the $find returns me a null. 
    Here is my page load method in .cs file

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

    This is my javascript function
    function SaveOriginalValues()
           var cmb1 = $find('<%= cmb1.ClientID %>');
           var selectedItem = cmbHealthPlan.get_selectedItem();

     cmb1 has a null value when I execute this. 
    Could anyone please help? 

    Thanks & Regards,

    Try the client-side pageLoad() method to get the client object of ajax-enabled controls.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function pageLoad()
        var cmb1 = $find('<%= cmb1.ClientID %>');
