    In a certain situation I would like to use a SearchBox as a control parameter for an SQLDataSource.
    But what property name should I use for that to work ? I coulnd't find properties like Text or Value or SelectedValue...

    <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="RadSearchBoxEvt" Name="evt" PropertyName="Value" Type="String" />

    Hello Francois,

    Currently RadSearchBox doesn't expose a Text or a Value property. The purpose of the control was to work through it's events, and we didn't implement the logic for storing a value. While we consider adding this functionality for our next release, I suggest you use our RadAutoCompleteBox for this task.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
