    I have the need to make a combobox witth a treeview in it, and have looked at the example given in the live samples.
    However the samples use a hardcoded id when referencing the combobox in the NodeClicking handler.

    function nodeClicking(sender, args)
                var comboBox = $find('RadComboBox1');
                var node = args.get_node()

    This is not usable for a real world control as one might want multiple such controls on the same page.
    So I need to be able to send the nodeClicking handler the id of the combobox, so that I can register the javascript on the page once.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello Thomas Scheelhardt,

    Here is how you can find the instance of  the combobox in hte OnClientNodeClicking event:

    <script type="text/javascript">  
    function OnClientNodeClickingHandler(sender, e)  
        var id = sender.get_id();  
        var index = id.indexOf("_i");  
        if (index > -1)  
            id = id.substr(0, index);  
        var combo = $find(id);   

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
