    If I want to change the selected item on a RadComboBox at onload (on the client), how can I do that? The real problem is I think is finding a suitable event to call $find in. If I call $find in document.onload it just restuns null.

    I have been looking for something similar to the ClientEvents on the RadTextBox but I can't find any thing like it for the RadComboBox.

    Hi Nicklas Johansson,

    ASP.NET Ajax controls are not immediately initialized. As a result $find will not return valid object unless called after all client-side object have been initialized. You can use the pageLoad function where $find is guaranteed to return valid object:

    function pageLoad()
         var combo = $find("<%= RadComboBox1.ClientID %>");

    For more info about the pageLoad function and the client-side life-cycle in ASP.NET Ajax you can check the following article: http://www.asp.net/AJAX/Documentation/Live/overview/AJAXClientEvents.aspx

    Also you can use OnClientLoad event of RadComboBox to complete your task.
