    I have a splitbutton in a toolbar.

    I have a number of options, but I want the fist one to be the default, always; even if they user clicks on the dropdown and selets a different child button.

    That is, if I have
    <telerik:RadToolBarSplitButton CommandName="Action" EnableDefaultButton="true" DefaultButtonIndex="0" >
            <telerik:RadToolBarButton runat="server"
            <telerik:RadToolBarButton runat="server"

    When the user clicks on the button proper, I want Add(Local) to execute. If they click on the dropdown and select Add(Window), I want Add(Window) to execute but I want Add(Local) to remain the default button.

    I'm getting it all to work, except for the last bit.

    I've tried calling set_defaultButtonIndex(0) in both the ClientClicking and ClientClicked events but to no avail.

    Appreciate any hints.

    Hi Stuart,

    Simply change the EnableDefaultButton property to false and the default button will remain the text that you set to the splitbutton itself as in this demo:
    <telerik:RadToolBarSplitButton CommandName="Action" EnableDefaultButton="false" Text="Default" DefaultButtonIndex="0">
                            <telerik:RadToolBarButton runat="server" CommandArgument="Local" Text="Local1">
                            <telerik:RadToolBarButton runat="server" CommandArgument="Window" Text="Local2">
