Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to cause a postback on selecting "Check All" option in the RadComboBox.

The documentation in this link says that the Check All checkbox "does" make a post-back, but am guessing thats a typo.

"Check All" CheckBox is not a RadComboBox item. It is a functionality implemented entirely on the client and does make a post-back to the server on checked / unchecked events, when AutoPostBack of RadComboBox is set to 'true'. 

Thanks!

Hello,

When user checks the "Check All" checkbox - all RadComboBox items are marked as checked and there is no specific event for that.Check this forum thread for more.

Thanks,
Princy.

Thanks Princy. Thought as much. Is it possible to cause a postback in a clientside event when the "Check All" checkbox is checked?

I have verified that the documentation is indeed correct and that, when you have defined your RadComboBox with AutoPostBack="true", a postback will occur when selecting the "Check All" option in the RadComboBox. On the server-side, you will be able to access the collection of checked items in the manner of the ComboBox / CheckBoxes online demo.

If you cannot set AutoPostBack="true", I have found an alternative solution that forces a postback using the OnClientBlur event of the RadComboBox using JavaScript.

Hi jumpstart,

Thank you for the response. Am not sure if your solution would apply to my scenario. I have AutoPostback enabled on the combobox but I don't need the postback to collect a list of selected items.

I have to enable a second combobox and perform a bunch of operations when Check All checkbox is selected. For that I need the actual server side event that is fired on checking "Check All". Thanks for providing a lead though!

You can attach a change() event handler at CheckAllItemsCheckbox  :
<title></title>
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
function onLoad(sender) { 
    $telerik.$('.rcbCheckAllItemsCheckBox').change(function() {        
     __doPostBack();
                     
    });
   
</script>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
        </asp:ScriptManager>
        <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server"
            AutoPostBack="true" OnItemChecked="RadComboBox1_ItemChecked"
            CheckBoxes="true"  OnClientLoad="onLoad"
            EnableCheckAllItemsCheckBox="true" >
            <Items>
                <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="item 1" Value="1" />
                <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="item 2" Value="2" />
                <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="item 3" Value="3" />
            </Items>
        </telerik:RadComboBox>
        <asp:Label ID="lblPostBack" runat="server"></asp:Label>
   
    </div>
    </form>
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    lblPostBack.Text = this.RadComboBox1.Text;
}
   
protected void RadComboBox1_ItemChecked(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItemEventArgs e)
{
    lblPostBack.Text = this.RadComboBox1.Text;
}

"I have verified that the documentation is indeed correct and that, when you have defined your RadComboBox with AutoPostBack="true", a postback will occur when selecting the "Check All" option in the RadComboBox."

Where did you find the documentation and what event captures this?

Best Wishes,

Hi Keith,

When you have defined your RadComboBox with AutoPostBack="true", a postback will occur when selecting the "Check All" option in the RadComboBox. The server side event SelectedIndexChanged of the RadComboBox will fire onBlur of the RadComboBox.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Princy.

I'll retest this, because I seem to recall it not working. 

Either way, it should fire off with a check event rather than requiring the end-user to step out of the combobox to get a selected change event onBlur.
