Infragistics WebTextEdit - Setting value in Javascript function

By : Daniel

I'm currently using the Infragistics component set for .Net 2.0, Visual Studio 2005 and C#. I have the following chunk of javascript code (text and other variables are declared elsewhere):




'text' is an Infragistics webTextEdit, while box is just a standard listbox. The two alerts seem to be working fine. Before I set the value, the listBox's selected value might be 'hello', and the alert box which pops up after I've assigned this value to 'text' is also 'hello'.

However, the value shown in the box on my form never appears to get updated. Anybody have some suggestions as to where I'm going wrong, gotchas in how Infragistics handles this kind of thing or anything else? I'm aware there may not be enough info here to diagnose the problem.

Unless I misunderstand the question, if text is an instance of the Infragistics WebTextEdit, you should just be able to do:


Or if text is the underlying input control, but 'id' is the ID of it,

var edit = igedit_getById(id)

See the WebTextEdit CSOM for more.

The value property is only available server-side. Using it client-side won't do anything. Setting it would have to be done server-side, or you'll need to craft fun javascript to address the text of the element that the control is actually rendered as in the browser.

The first time I looked into PRADO, I spent about 10 days using it and kept saying to myself: "This framework is amazing!". A couple of months later, I started working on a big project where the customer had chosen to use PRADO... And Hell began... As long as we kept using PRADO's base components, everything was perfect and development was fast. But as soon as the customer wanted an out-of-the-box thing, we literaly spent 2 to 3 times the amount of time we would have done it with another framework. And I'm not talking about big customizations. The PRADO framework forces the application to have a particular structure and workflow. If that logic is not working for you, then check out another framework.
