Thanks for contacting us and for your questions. The Text
is always changed by the value of the cell selected as a DisplayMember
when the current row inside the drop down is changed.
That happens when you select a row from the drop down and when you set the SelectedValue
properties. The Text
property should also be initially set when you bind RadMultiColumnComboBox
to a data source.
You can use the Text
property to acquire the current value of the DisplayMember
cell of the selected row in the control. By setting this property, however, you cannot select a row in the control. You need to use SelectedValue/SelectedIndex
Since you also report an issue with not getting the Text
property properly initialized upon binding, I would like to ask you to prepare a small Windows Forms application that I can use to reproduce the issue and see what goes wrong and thus be able to better help.
Thanks for your time.
