                    <ItemTemplate>
                      
                        <div style="padding-left:30px">
                        <asp:Image ID="imgo" ImageUrl="~/images/Picture3.png" runat="server" />

                       </div>                     
                    </ItemTemplate>
                </telerik:RadToolBarButton>
  
            </Items>
        </telerik:RadToolBar>

RadToolBarItem textItem = RadToolBar1.FindItemByText("Button 1");
     TextBox txtseach = (TextBox)textItem.FindControl("txtseach");
 
     String tempText  = txtseach.Text;

Hi Vuyiswa,

The id of the textbox in your code is wrong, it should be like this:

protected void RadToolBar1_ButtonClick(object sender, RadToolBarEventArgs e)
{
    RadToolBarItem textItem = RadToolBar1.FindItemByText("Button 1");
    TextBox txtseach = (TextBox)textItem.FindControl("txtSearch");
 
    String tempText = txtseach.Text;
 
}

Note that the IDs are case-sensitive.

Kind regards,
