When the SelectedValue
is defined the RadComboBox
will initially display the value from the datasource for the current field.
With this said, note that with the current setup the selected values would not be persisted to the datasource as the dropdown controls are placed in ItemTemplate
. In case you would like to persist the changes to the datasource you should use EditItemTemplate
I also tried to replicate the behavior you describe, however, I was not able to. I am attaching a sample project I used for testing. The selected item in the RadComboBox is persisted after postback on my end. Would you give the sample a try and let me know what is different in your scenario?
I would appreciate it if you could modify the sample in a way that the issue is replicated and send it back. Thus, we will be able to examine the problem locally and look for its cause.
