I build a tagcloud based on the content of a certain text. Everything works great. Gratulations on yet another fine RadControl.

I was wondering however if it would be possible to have the click on a tag trigger a clientside javascript function. Through the click I want to call my highlighting script, which obviously would highlight the clicked tag text in my body  text.

Is there any way to achieve this functionality (the javascript function call from a tag).

With regards,

Hello Jeroen,

I believe the easiest way would be to handle the OnClientItemClicking client-side event, and then get the tagCloud item clicked as shown in the following code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<head runat="server">
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function OnClientItemClicking(tagCloud, args)
            var currentItem = args.get_item();
            alert("Text: " + currentItem.get_text() + " NavigateUrl: " + currentItem.get_navigateUrl());
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server"></asp:Label>
    <telerik:RadTagCloud ID="TagCloud1" runat="server" Width="400px" OnClientItemClicking="OnClientItemClicking">
