    I am getting this error after I reset the values of the controls including RadComboBox.
    Here's the scenario:

    1. I have asp.net controls including dropdownlist, textbox and 2 RadComboBox
    2. First RadComboBox = source depends on asp.net dropdownlist selected value
    3. Second RadComboBox = source depends on First RadComboBox selected value
    4. ASP.NET dropdownlist and First RadComboBox are set to autopostback=true and have selectedindexchanged events
    5. Has an asp.net button "Reset" to reset/clear the values for the controls

    Error occurs when I select an item on ASP.NET dropdownlist after OnClick event of reset button
    Below is the error I got on our log file since when in debug mode, I just get a blank page

    • I already remove the partial postback (radajaxmanager)
    • I retain the event for asp.net dropdownlist and radcombobox event but commented all codes inside it so it will just postback and no code will be executed

    OnClick event has below code: (I also tried commenting the part of the 2 RadComboBox which are: ddlFailureCategory and ddlFailureSubCategory but still get error)

    txtCaseNo.Text = string.Empty;
    this.IsFirstLoad = true;
    chkICAR.SelectedValue = "No";
    chk8D.SelectedValue = "No";
    chkReassignAccept.SelectedValue = "No";
    chkReassignReject.SelectedValue = "No";
    chkRevertActionItem.SelectedValue = "No";
    chkReopenCase.SelectedValue = "No";
    chkAutoRaise.SelectedValue = "No";
    chkActivateCase.SelectedValue = "No";
    ddlStatus.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlModule.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlFailureCategory.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlFailureSubCategory.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCaseType.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlTechnology.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlOwnershipGroup.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondCaseNo.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondStatus.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondModule.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondFailureCategory.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondFailureSubCategory.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondCaseType.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondTech.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondOwnershipGroup.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondCaseICAR.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondCase8D.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondReassignAccept.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondReassignReject.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondRevertActionItem.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondReopenCase.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondAutoRaise.SelectedIndex = -1;
    ddlCondActivateCase.SelectedIndex = -1;
    txtCaseNo.Enabled = false;
    ddlStatus.Enabled = false;
    ddlModule.Enabled = false;
    ddlFailureCategory.Enabled = false;
    ddlFailureSubCategory.Enabled = false;
    ddlCaseType.Enabled = false;
    ddlTechnology.Enabled = false;
    ddlOwnershipGroup.Enabled = false;
    chkICAR.Enabled = false;
    chk8D.Enabled = false;
    chkReassignAccept.Enabled = false;
    chkReassignReject.Enabled = false;
    chkRevertActionItem.Enabled = false;
    chkReopenCase.Enabled = false;
    chkAutoRaise.Enabled = false;
    chkActivateCase.Enabled = false;

    Kindly give an advice on how to interpret the error I got since in debug mode, I didn't get an exception.

    Hi Jayzle,

    You can refer to this forum thread where similar issue have been discussed.

    If it is not useful in your case would you please share the exact code that will reproduce the issue if you use just one or two RadComboBox and a button so we could inspect it locally and be more helpful.

    Hi Plamen,

    I think the cause of the error is when I reset the selected item on the radcombobox (during reset button click)
    I just use another way by combining client and server side (for the radcombobox) during reset button click.
    With that, I didn't encounter any error. Thanks for your help.
