    I have placed a radcombobox and asp:panel id="Panel1" inside Advance Form control (AdvanceForm.ascx)
    I Intend to make panel1 visible or Invisible based on the radcombobox selection using OnClientSelectedIndexChanged event of radcombobox.

    Using telerik find method in javascript, I can easily get the telerik control but cant get controls.
    For Example
    function StartDateSelected_AdvancedInsert(sender, args) {
            var $ = $telerik.$;
            var endDatejQueryObject = $("[id$='AdvancedInsertForm_EndDate']");
            var endDatePicker = $find(endDatejQueryObject.attr("id"));
    Its all good for RadDatePicker but when i change it to 
    [id$='AdvancedInsertForm_AdvanceControlPanel']it doesn't return any panel control.

    Hi Richard ,

    To  hide / show an control you could use the code below:
    function selectedIndexChanged(sender, args)
        var $ = $telerik.$;
        var panel = $("[id$='Panel1']");
        if (args.get_item().get_text() == "hidden")
            panel.css("visibility", "hidden");
        } else
            panel.css("visibility", "visible");
    <telerik:RadComboBox runat="server" ID="RadComboBox1" OnClientSelectedIndexChanged="selectedIndexChanged">
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="hidden" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="visible"/>
    <asp:Panel runat="server" ID="Panel1" style="visibility: hidden;">
        <asp:TextBox runat="server" />
    The panel defined on the page hides/shows depending on the RadComboBox's selected text.

    The $find method does not work with controls, because it tries to find the client object for a control which ID is set as an argument, and for the controls such an object does not exist.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
