I am trying to use the Telerik radbutton in a module I am creating for a site using version 7.02.02, but the control will not display with any text.

Here is my markup:
                    < tel:dnnRadButton ID="rb1" runat="server" Text="This Is A Test"
                         ButtonType="StandardButton" Value="Also A Test" >
                    < /tel:dnnRadButton >
                   

When the control gets rendered the html is:

< input type="submit" value="" id="dnn_ctr474_View_rb1_input" name="dnn$ctr474$View$rb1" class="rbDecorated" tabindex="-1" >

As you can see, even though I specified a Value in the markup, it is not being rendered with the html. I have tried the demos from the Telerik website, but they will not work for me to display the text either.

 Is anyone else noticing this issue? Am I doing something wrong?

Hello,

This is sort of a guess - I haven't tried it yet. But, a lot of the DNN controls use localized stuff instead of direct text. So, I wouldn't be surprised if the "Text" property is actually setting a resource key for the local resource file for the control.

If you haven't dealt with that before, just put an App_LocalResources folder in the folder where your control is... then, add a resource file called (mycontrol).ascx.resx. Then, put an entry like "MyButton.Text" with the value of the text you want.

Mike,

Thank you, that worked!

Steps:

  1. In resource file for the .ascx control; added an entry for "Button.Text".
  2. Set the value of the Button.Text entry to "This is a test"
  3. Set the rad button markup as < tel:DnnRadButton Text="Button" runat="server" ID="testbtn" >< /tel:DnnRadButton >
  4. Button renders with the text "This is a test"

It would be nice if there were a way to override the use of the resource file, but having an answer to this question is enough for now.
