Hello

This is the first time using a windows forms combobox and am trying to find an item by value like I did with a web drop down but can't seem to do it.
What do I need to do to do this with a window combo?

Thanks

Bex

Hello Becky,

Thank you for your interest in our products.

Currently, you cannot find an item by its value out of the box. However, you can easily implement your own FindByValue method. I made such sample implementation for you:
private RadComboBoxItem FindByValue(RadComboBox radComboBox, object value)  
{  
    foreach (RadComboBoxItem item in radComboBox.Items)  
    {  
        if (item.Value.Equals(value))  
        {  
            return (RadComboBoxItem)item;  
        }  
    }  
 
    return null;  

I am attaching a sample project to demonstrate this method in use. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

Regards,
