    Does anyone have an example of using a RadComboBox in a DataForm for a lookup, and the selected item bound to a property in the parent collection? I'm having an absolutely miserable time getting what I expected to be a simple thing to actually work.

    Hi Helen,

    Unfortunately, we don't have such example, demonstrating how to use RadComboBox in DataForm.

    I would suggest you to refer to the following forum thread - http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/silverlight/combobox/radcombobox-within-dataform-did-not-apply-changes-after-committed.aspx 

    I hope this helps.

    Don't worry, after a bazillion kluges I finally got it to work. I doubt the problems were due to your RadComboBox, they were due to the bugs in the DataForm. For one thing, you would think that when the DataForm is disabled, all the Controls it contains would also be disabled. Not so! In particular, the ComboBox and a Button have to be handled carefully in code.

    Please, please, please add a DataForm to your contols!!!

    I would just like to ask if you can share your solution. I am in the same dilemma and need something like what you have implemented and since I am very very new in SL4 and VS2010 I can't seem to have it working :(

    Thanks in advance.
