Hi,

Is there a way i can make the controls (radtxtbox, radcombobox etc) invisible with javascript, what i have so far is

var cboTask = "<%= cboTask.ClientID %>";
var Task = document.getElementById(cboTask).value;

if(Task.style.visibility == "visible" || Task.style.visibility == "")
            {
                Task.style.visibility = "hidden";
                alert('hidden set');
            }
            else
            {
                Task.style.visibility = "visible";
                alert('visible set');
            }
        }

but i dont think task.style.visibility is the correct syntax as it comes back as undefined. Can anyone help me out?

Hello Bob,

I recommend you use the set_visible property as shown below:

RadComboBox
$find("RadComboBox1").set_visible(false);

RadTextBox
$find("RadTextBox1").set_visible(false);

RadTextBox Client Object

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Is it possible to set the initial client hidden or visible state in code behind?
 
I can't use .Visible = false as this will prevent the control rendering in the page and me subsequently being able to show it again with .set_visible( true ).

I can hide the control by doing this in code behind....

RadTabStrip1.Style.Add(

HtmlTextWriterStyle.Display, "none" );

 


...but when you try to make it visible again using .set_visible( true ) then it doesn't work. 

I suspect I may need to inject some javascript into the page via code behind that either shows or hides the control.

Hello Sphengle,

In this case you must show the control like this:

$get("RadTabStrip1").style.display = "block";

I hope this helps.

Many thanks - that did the trick.

After doing a bit of Googling I now see the difference between $get() and $find().  Although I never did find the officual MS docs on the subject.
