RadDropDownTree  provides a number of client-side events that would allow you to accomplish even the most complicated tasks.

You can attach events to the RadDropDownTree by using either the server-side properties or the client-side API.

  1. Attaching the event handlers
    You can set the property to the name of the function to be called when the event occurs.
    <telerik:RadDropDownTree ID="RadDropDownTree1" runat="server" OnClientDropDownOpening="onClientDropDownOpening" />
                		
  2. Cancelling an event
    The events, whose names end in ing, can be cancelled. You can cancel the event by using the set_cancel method of the event arguments passed to the handler.
    <script type="text/javascript">
    	
        <script type="text/javascript">
    	function onClientDropDownOpening(sender, args)
    	{
    
    		 args.set_cancel(true);
    	}
    </script>
