    How can I retrieve a hidden asp:Label field when the OnClientSelectedIndexChanged event is raised?

    function OnClientSelectedIndexChanged(sender, eventArgs) {
        var item = eventArgs.get_item();
        if (item.get_text() == "Rejected") {
            var WorkItemId = [...]

    <tr id="ctl00_PageContent_rtlRshItems_ctl04__2" class="rtlR rtlRL" style="background-color:Lavender;">
    <td align="left" valign="middle" style="width:90px;">
        <div id="ctl00_PageContent_rtlRshItems_ctl04_rcbStatus" class="RadComboBox RadComboBox_Windows7">
            <table class="rcbFocused" style="border-width: 0pt; border-collapse: collapse;" summary="combobox">
                    <tr class="rcbReadOnly">
                        <td class="rcbInputCell rcbInputCellLeft" style="width:100%;">
                            <input id="ctl00_PageContent_rtlRshItems_ctl04_rcbStatus_Input" class="rcbInput" type="text" readonly="readonly" value="Submitted" name="ctl00$PageContent$rtlRshItems$ctl04$rcbStatus" autocomplete="off">
                        <td class="rcbArrowCell rcbArrowCellRight">
                            <a id="ctl00_PageContent_rtlRshItems_ctl04_rcbStatus_Arrow" style="overflow: hidden;display: block;position: relative;outline: none;">select</a>
            <input id="ctl00_PageContent_rtlRshItems_ctl04_rcbStatus_ClientState" type="hidden" name="ctl00_PageContent_rtlRshItems_ctl04_rcbStatus_ClientState" autocomplete="off">
    <td class=" rtlCL" style="width:0px;">
        <asp:label id="lblWorkItemId" text="199" visible="false"> </asp:label>

    I want to obtain the value of lblWorkItemId, how can I do this?

    Its not possible to access the label in JavaScript when Visible property is set to False. Instead of setting Visible to false please try setting display to none. Please take a look into the following sample.

    <asp:label id="lblWorkItemId" text="199"  runat="server" style="display:none"  > </asp:label>

    function OnClientSelectedIndexChanged(sender, eventArgs)
        var item = eventArgs.get_item();
        if (item.get_text() == "Rejected")
            var WorkItemId =  document.getElementById("lblWorkItemId");

    Hope this helps,
