    Hi dear rep of telerik,
    I have a GridViewComboBoxColumn in my gridview and would like to extract the selected text (given by DisplayMember property) programatically.

    here is my column declaration

    Dim clubManagerColumn As New GridViewComboBoxColumn
    clubManagerColumn.HeaderText =
    "Club Manager"
    clubManagerColumn.DataField = "manager_stuff_id"
    clubManagerColumn.DataSource = StaffBindingSource
    clubManagerColumn.ValueMember =
    clubManagerColumn.DisplayMember = "staff_name"

    when I try 


    I am getting the value for the DataField property, instead I would like to get the selected value of the DisplayMember property.

    thank you!

    Hello Vahagn Hokhikyan,

    We confirm that the cell's Value property gets the DataField property instead of the DisplayMember. We would suggest using the following code to get text of ComboBoxColumn

    ClubRadGridView.CurrentRow.Cells ( "club_address_id" ). CellElement.Text

    Hope that helps.
