Question - is it possible to maintain the visual state of a RadButtonElement or a RadImageButtonElement once the button is clicked?  By this I mean exactly the same thing that happens in the text editor for posting something to this forum, if you click the  bold, italics or underline button.  It stays "selected" until you click the button again.

I am having a hard time getting similar functionality out of button elements on RadRibbonBar to show that a specific option is in use currently...

Thanks!

Justin

Hi Justin,

Thanks for writing.

In your case, I would suggest that you use the RadToggleButtonElement instead of RadButton or RadImageButton. The RadToggleButton control is particularly designed to support the behavior you require.

You can easily add RadToggleButtonElement to your chunks in a RadRibbonBar by clicking the Edit Items action from the Smart Tag of the chunk you want to edit.

I hope this will help you. Do not hesitate to get back to me in case of further questions.

Best wishes,
