    Hi - I have a combobox in the template for a new record on the RadGrid. The value selected in this combobox should be taken from a control outside the grid. Where and how can I set the default for the new record control?Thanks,

    Hi Paul,

    You could use the ItemCreated server event of the grid:
    protected void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
            if (e.Item is GridEditFormInsertItem)
                // find and access the combobox
                GridEditFormInsertItem insertItem = e.Item as GridEditFormInsertItem;
                RadComboBox combo = insertItem.FindControl("YourComboID") as RadComboBox;
                // assign the value from the external control
                combo.FindItemIndexByValue(Label1.Text).Selected = true;

    That should do the trick. Please give it a try and let me know about the result.
