I would love to use a client side function to set the text of a RadDock in a way that is reflected also on the serverside in the DockState.Text object. Is this possible, since there is no set_text function on the client side object.

Is it possible to at least get a little input on this?

Hi Christoffer,

RadDock's Text property is not exposed on the client, and that's why it cannot be set using client code. In case you require that the property is accessed on the client, my recommendation is to use a HiddenField for every dock, to store the value of the Text property. The value of the HiddenField can be easily changed on the client.

Hi Pero, thanks for getting back to me on this one.

What I need is a way to set some info for a RadDock that will be reflected in the DockState on the server side after a postback. I'm guessing there's no way for the hiddenfield you suggest to be reflected on the server side, or is there?

Hi Christoffer,

When the value of a HiddenField control is set on the client, it will persist its value on the server. Here is an example:
.aspx
<%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title></title>
    <telerik:RadScriptBlock runat="server">
 
        <script type="text/javascript">
            function SetValue()
            {
                var hiddenField = $get("<%=HiddenField1.ClientID %>");
                hiddenField.value = "Some value set on the client!";
            }
        </script>
 
    </telerik:RadScriptBlock>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
        <Scripts>
            <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.Core.js" />
        </Scripts>
    </asp:ScriptManager>
    <div>
        <input type="button" onclick="SetValue(); return false;" value="Set Value Hidden Field" /><br />
        <br />
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Postback" />
        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server"></asp:Label>
        <telerik:RadDockLayout ID="RadDockLayout1" runat="server">
            <telerik:RadDockZone ID="RadDockZone1" runat="server" MinHeight="300px" Width="300px">
                <telerik:RadDock ID="RadDock1" runat="server" Title="RadDock-Title" Width="300px">
                    <ContentTemplate>
                        <asp:HiddenField ID="HiddenField1" runat="server" />
                        <br />

public partial class Default_Dock : System.Web.UI.Page
{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Label1.Text = HiddenField1.Value;
    }
}
