    Hello Majid Darab,

    To subscribe to the OnClientSelectedIndexChanged event you need to set that property either inline (in the aspx file) or in the code behind.
    Alternatively you can use the add_selectedIndexChanged(handlername) client method to subscribe to that event as shown here: client-side events.

    Also, do not use $(document).ready because the RadComboBox client object may not be initialized yet. Use pageLoad() or Sys.Application.add_load methods instead.

    I am using client side event for radcombobox as below
     function OnClientSelectedIndexChanged(sender, eventArgs) {
            var item = eventArgs.get_item();

    This event is firing but the value of item coming always same that is the first value.

    So if i select any other item then also i am getting same value that is the first value.

    Hello Sunil,

    I tried your code but I am not able to replicate the issue and OnClientSelectedIndexChanged is working fine for me and new item is also retrieved in the JS code. Please have a look at the code I tried.

    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox" runat="server" AllowCustomText="true" OnClientSelectedIndexChanged="OnClientSelectedIndexChanged"
        Skin="Vista" EmptyMessage="Please select">
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Audi" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Bugatti" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Jaguar" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Lexus" />

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function OnClientSelectedIndexChanged(sender, args) {
            // To get the item
            var item = args.get_item();
            //To get the item text
            var itemText = args.get_item()._text;

    If you have further issues, please provide your full code.
