Hi Manfred Pohler,
As I have replied in the forum post Listbox bound with List<Class>
, RadControls for WinForms and the Microsoft controls are similar, but due to the additional range of functionality that RadControls offer, there are certain differences in the API and their behavior.
If you want to get your own custom object, based on a selected item, you should assign the object to the Tag
property of the RadComboBoxItem
in the ItemDataBound
event handher of RadComboBox
. For additional information, please refer to our Help Documentation article: RadComboBox >> Databinding >> ItemDataBound event
I have attached a sample application to demonstrate the approach.
I hope this helps. Please feel free to contact me with other questions you have.
