I have a textbox whixh is defined like below.

<telerik:RadTextBox ID="rtbUserName" runat="server" Width="98%" ShouldResetWidthInPixels="false">
</telerik:RadTextBox>

And when i want to set it's value by using jquery. See the following code line.
$('input[id$=rtbUserName_text]').val("Test");

The value is correctly set in the textbox. But when i enter the textbox to change the value. The whole value disappears.

Can someone please tell me if it's possible what i want. Because i don't want to work with client id's.

Hi Sander,

Generally, this is an incorrect way to set the RadTextBox value, but if you insist on using it, then please add the following line:

$('input[id$=rtbUserName_text]').val("Test");
$('input[id$=rtbUserName]').val("Test");

Normally, the RadTextBox value should be set via the control's client API:
