    Hi Roland,

    Thanks for contacting us and for your question.

    Currently it is not possible to use custom items when binding the RadComboBox control. However, we will consider adding the appropriate API which will enable the developers to create their custom items and use them instead of the standard RadComboBoxItem type.

    I have updated your Telerik points for bringing our attention to this issue. Do not hesitate to write back if you need further assistance.

    Kind regards,

    Thank you.

    At the moment I can create my ComboboxItem in code and add the to Items collection.

    It would be nice if combobx item had property like: ItemsFactory that would create the items.

    Hello mike_edu,

    We have plans to update the ItemDataBinding event of RadComboBox and RadListBox to provide the ability to change the type of the created combo box items. Currently the only way to provide text and value is to create items explicitly, set the Text property and use the Tag property to store the values.

    Write again if you have other questions.
     

    All the best,
