Hi,

I wrote the following code in javascript
if(...)
{ var controltodisable= $find("<%= ControlToDisable.ClientID %>");
controltodisable.set_enabled(false);}

Here, ControlToDisable is a RadTextBox.
With the above code the textbox looks disabled but I am still able to type text in it. The text appears greyed out though.

How can I resolve the issue?

Also, when I disable the same textbox from clientside (JS) and codebehind (CS) there is a difference in the field display style.
What could be the issue?

Brindavan

storageUnit1.set_enabled(false);

Hi Brindavan,

Try using the disable() method in order to disable the RadTextBox from client side.

[ASPX]
 
<telerik:RadTextBox ID="ControlToDisable" runat="server">  
</telerik:RadTextBox> 

[JacaScript]
 
<script type="text/javascript">  
function Disable()  
{  
    var RadTextBox1 = $find("<%= ControlToDisable.ClientID %>");  
    RadTextBox1.disable();  
}  
</script> 
RadTextBox Client Object

Thanks,
Princy.

Hi Princy,

I have tested your solution and the control behaves correctly. However when I come back to the server after clicking on a button, value from the disabled textbox cannot be read.
I solved that problem by enabling again the RadTextBox control on the OnClientClick method of the button.
But i was wondering if there is a better way to do that.

Thanks,
Sonia.

Hi Sonia,

For such scenarios I suggest you set the RadTextBox to ReadOnly instead of disabling the whole control. You can try the following code to make a RadTextBox ReadOnly from client side.

JavaScript:
<script type="text/javascript"
function setReadOnly() 
    var TextBox1 = $find("<%= RadTextBox1.ClientID %>"); 
    TextBox1._textBoxElement.readOnly = true
</script>

Hope this helps,
Princy.
