Question :

I need to access the Preview button ID="Preview" in the Report Viewer from a DIV that contains button with ID= btnConfirm on the ASPX page as given above in the JQuery script. The ASPX page contains the Telerik Report Viewer. I put code in the
$("#btnConfirm").click(function () event but that does not work. Can you give me ideas please?

Try using this selector:

var frame = $('[id$="ReportViewer1ParameterArea]"');

Removing the # and adding quotes " around the value.
