    Does anyone know how to do this? I looked through the docs and forums and could only find information on selecting the "first" item. The reason I need this is I have a certain item selected by handling the onclick event of the item within the <ItemTemplate>. However, after a postback I need to be able to reselect the item again. Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi Robert,

    As RadListView is a look-less control and does not have any built-in layout, there is no notion of item client-side object. However you can use the server-side RadListViewDataItem's DisplayIndex  to trigger client-side selectItem method, similar to the following:

    <telerik:RadListView runat="server" ID="RadListView1" 
                <input type="button" value="click me to select" onclick='selectItem(<%#Container.DisplayIndex %>)' />
        <script type="text/javascript">
            function selectItem(displayIndex) {
                $find("<%=RadListView1.ClientID %>").selectItem(displayIndex);

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
