    I have a busniess Object that I am currently binding to the a RadListBox.

    Is there a way to set the Tag of the RadListBoxItem to the BO while binding?

    If not does anyone have a better suggestion the a foreach loop and comparing the id (from the value field of the bind) to get the BO of the selection?

    Thank you

    Hello Scott Gross,

    The ItemDataBound event of RadListBoxElement is raised when a new RadListBoxItem is added, while binding the list box. This is a convenient place to put the code you need to get the job done. Here is an example showing how to subscribe for that event:

    RadListBoxElement listBoxElement = (RadListBoxElement)this.radListBox1.RootElement.Children[0];
    listBoxElement.ItemDataBound += new ItemDataBoundEventHandler(onItemDataBound);

    Dim listBoxElement As RadListBoxElement = CType(Me.radListBox1.RootElement.Children(0), RadListBoxElement)
    AddHandler listBoxElement.ItemDataBound, AddressOf onItemDataBound

    The onItemDataBound event handler receives in its event argument a RadListBoxItem and its corresponding data object. This makes it easy for you to set the property Tag to whatever you need.

    If you have any additional questions, please contact us.
