    Hi Guys,
    I have a GridViewTexboxColumn that displays Gender ( either M or F ) and I want to change it into GridViewComboBox that has 2 items, Male and Female
    Thanks in advance.

    First, you need to handle the DataBindingComplete event
    void radGridView_DataBindingComplete(object sender, GridViewBindingCompleteEventArgs e)
        var grid = sender as RadGridView;
        if (grid == null || !grid.Columns.Contains("Gender"))
        var genderColumn = new GridViewComboBoxColumn("Gender")
                                   DataSource = new List<GenderHelper> { new GenderHelper("Male", "M"), new GenderHelper("Female", "F") },
                                   DisplayMember = "Display",
                                   ValueMember = "Value"
    public class GenderHelper
        public string Display { get; set; }
        public string Value { get; set; }
        public GenderHelper(string display, string value)
            Display = display;
            Value = value;

    Hope this helps, if you have any other questions or comments, please let me know,

    Best Regards,
