    I have a RadGrid with an update function and an EditItemTemplate.
    In here I have a RadDropDownList which is populated by a SQLDataSource.

    My issue is: when a user clicks Edit on a row and the dropdown is displayed, how do I have the dropdown select the row's value from the list?

    Similar to how the textbox is populated with:

    Text='<%# Bind( "Notes") %>

    What is the equivalent for dropdown?
    My dropdown:
    <telerik:RadDropDownList ID="rddlLocations" runat="server" DataSourceID="GetLocationsSqlDataSource" DataTextField="Location" DataValueField="ID"></telerik:RadDropDownList>

    Hi Silviu,

    Set the SelectedValue property:

    <telerik:RadDropDownList ID="rddlLocations" runat="server" DataSourceID="GetLocationsSqlDataSource"  SelectedValue='<%# Bind("ID") %>'  DataTextField="Location" DataValueField="ID"></telerik:RadDropDownList>

    I hope this helps.
