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,
Paul

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.
