    HI Everyone,

    At the moment I have a split button on my toolbar with two options:

    Format HTML
    Format Text

    By default the Format HTML is selected and displayed on the toolbar.
    When a user selects Format Text a postback occurs and the Toolbar split button is updated to display the Format Text image.
    Is there a way to stop a postback from occuring when the user clicks the split button?, I only want a postback to occur when the user makes a selection from the dropdown list.

    I know that this is how the DropDown button operates but I can't use it as it does not update the Image displayed on the toolbar when a user makes a selection.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Hi Antony,

    Please subscribe to OnClientButtonClicking event and check whether the dropdown is open like this:

    function buttonClicking(sender, args) { 
        if (!args.get_item().get_parent()._isDropDownVisible)
