Can someone tell me Is it a bug or something else? In the picture, the top value is just output by response.write(radtextbox.ClientID) which is different to ie rendered clientid

Hello Vincent,

RadTextBox renders several <input> elements. The control's client ID is applied to the next <input> in the HTML, which is also seen on your screenshot.

someID - this is the ID of the <input> which holds the control's actual value and the client control instance

someID_text - this is the ID of the <input> which accepts the user input

Rendering several <input> elements is required in order to support all features of RadTextBox (and the other RadInput textbox types)

Thanks for your reply.

Well, that's make sense. But I have a problem when I am trying to access the value of the radtextbox from javascript after postback.. Refer to that screenshot I posted. After I do a postback and use the $find to get radtextbox object, it always return null.

<%@ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPage.master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default2.aspx.cs" Inherits="Default2" %> 
 
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="head" Runat="Server">  
</asp:Content> 
<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1" Runat="Server">  
 
<script type="text/javascript">  
    var o = $find("<%=RadTextBox1.ClientID %>");  
    alert(o);  
    alert("<%=RadTextBox1.ClientID %>");  
    if (o != null)  
        alert(o.InnerHtml);  
      
</script> 
 
    <telerik:RadTextBox ID="RadTextBox1" runat="server">  
    </telerik:RadTextBox> 
    <telerik:RadNumericTextBox ID="txtNum" runat="server">  
    </telerik:RadNumericTextBox> 
    <asp:Button runat="server" ID="cmd" Text="PostBack" /> 
      
</asp:Content>

Hi Vincent,

The $find statement is outside any function, which means that it will be executed as soon as the Javascript is parsed by the browser. This is too early, because the AJAX controls' client instances have not been initialized yet. Please refer to the following blog post to find out how to execute Javascript with $find() statements as soon as possible (Sys.Application.add_load() )

All the best,
