ClientEvent is triggered by EmptyMessage for RadTextBox on page load
When setting client events in a RadTextBox and using an EmptyMessage, the EmptyMessage will trigger the event on page load.  This is true for a multiple TextMode but others are untested.

Hi Daniel,

I tried to reproduce the problem with the latest version 2020.2.617 but without success. Can you please see the video attached and let me know if I am missing something?

Here you are my test content:

          <telerik:RadTextBox ID="RadEditor1" TextMode="MultiLine" runat="server" EmptyMessage="Type your name here!">
              <ClientEvents OnLoad="OnLoad" OnKeyPress="OnKeyPress" OnBlur="OnBlur" OnFocus="OnFocus" OnValueChanging="OnValueChanging" />
            function OnLoad() {
                console.log("On OnLoad fired!");
            function OnKeyPress() {
                console.log("On Key Press fired!");
            function OnBlur() {
                console.log("On Blur fired!");

            function OnFocus() {
                console.log("On Focus fired!");

            function OnValueChanging() {
                console.log("On Value changing fired!");


Best Regards,

Progress Telerik
