Hi. What is the ClientEvents equivilant for OnClick for the RadTextBox? I can add it to the textbox itself and it works but VS gives me a warning saying the attribute isn't valid. As I said, the page still works okay, see code below. The function just clears the textbox when clicked in. Thanks.

Daniel

<telerik:RadTextBox ID="rtbLastname" runat="server" Skin="Default" Text="Last name" Width="99px" OnClick="if(this.value=='Last name')this.value='';"></telerik:RadTextBox>

Hello Daniel,

I guess you want to implement the watermark feature for textbox. If so, use the EmptyMessage property than using Text and clearing it. Check the mark-up shown below.

aspx:
<telerik:RadTextBox ID="rtbLastname" runat="server" Skin="Default" Width="99px" EmptyMessage="LastName">
</telerik:RadTextBox>

[And you can use the OnFocus client event which fires when focussing the textrbox]

Thanks,
Princy.
