Hi,

On the client, is there a way to get the value of the DataTextField used for binding?   The RadComboBox client object has a property _dataTextField, but this is always empty.

Thanks,

Dave

Hi Dave,

The _dataTextField property returns a value only if the ComboBox is bound on the client-side. If you are binding it on the server-you can keep the value of the DataTextField into a hidden field on the page, accessing its value directly when needed.

        <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadCombobox1" runat="server"></telerik:RadComboBox>
        <asp:HiddenField ID="HiddenField1" runat="server" />

        RadCombobox1.DataTextField = "TextFieldName";
        HiddenField1.Value = "TextFieldName";
        ...

And when you need this value on the client-side:

            function accessTextField() {
                var dataTextFiel = $get("HiddenField1").value;
            }
