Hi @all!

If I set the TargetControlID of the AutoCompleteExtender to the Textbox which is positioned in a Toolbar I get the Error that the control cannot be found. Does anyone know a solution to this?

Thank you very much!


<

 

telerik:RadToolBar ID="rdtbSearchQualifications" runat="server" Width="100%"

 

 

meta:resourcekey="rdtSelectionResource1"

 

 

OnButtonClick="rdtbSearchQualifications_ButtonClick"

 

 

Style="display: block; float: none">

 

 

<CollapseAnimation Duration="200" Type="OutQuint" />

 

 

<Items>

 

 

<telerik:RadToolBarButton runat="server"  

 

 

CommandName="SearchString" Width="150px">

 

 

<ItemTemplate>

 

 

<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">

 

 

<tr>

 

 

<td>

 

 

<asp:TextBox ID="tbSearchString" runat="server"

 

 

meta:resourcekey="tbSearchStringResource1" Width="200px">

 

 

</telerik:TextBox>

 

 

</td>

 

 

</tr>

 

 

</table>

 

 

</ItemTemplate>

 

 

</telerik:RadToolBarButton>

Hello Ralf,

I guess that the extender cannot find the TextBox because it is nested within the ToolBar.

You can try to:
  • trick the extender using a somewhat 'hacky' ID, such as rdtbSearchQualifications_tbSearchString
  • use a RadComboBox with AllowCustomText=true instead of the AutoCompleteExtender.

We could provide more help if you supply a sample project through a support ticket.
Sincerely yours,

Hi Alex,

Thanks for your reply. This helped me very well. Now I´m using the Combobox with autocomplete functionality.

Thanks again,

Ralf
