    I have a Radcombo box with check boxes this is my markup:


    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="ddlSpecialty" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true" AppendDataBoundItems="true" EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" Skin="Activity" Width="185px" Height="300px" emptyMessage="Click to change Specialties" >







    <asp:CheckBox ID="chkSpecialty" runat="server" RepeatDirection="Horizontal" RepeatLayout="Flow" AutoPostBack="true"></asp:CheckBox>



    <asp:Label ID="lblSpecialty" runat="server" AssociatedControlID="chkSpecialty"><%#Eval("Specialty") %></asp:Label>









    What I can't do is this:

    If one check box is selected then show that value in the radcombobox, but if more than one is selected then have the words 'Multiple Selected' be displayed.

    Can anyone offer any help on this.

    Hello Andy,

    I found code libraries, using checkboxes inside RadComboBox. I hope tis would shed some light on achieving your functionality.

    Hi Andy,

    When multiple selection is implemented usually the values are stored in the Text property of the RadComboBox, which is in fact the text shown in the input. Since you want to show a message once more than one item is selected, my suggestion is to use a hidden input on the page to store these values.

    Best wishes,
