    I have a RadCombobox on my page as follows:

      <telerik:RadComboBox ID="cboBenchmarkCompanies" runat="server" 
                                                         meta:resourcekey="cboBenchmarkCompanies" />

    I load the list in the onload with:
                if (!this.IsPostBack) {
                    var allCompanies = _applicationUserRepository.GetAllSurveyUsers();
                    cboBenchmarkCompanies.DataSource = allCompanies;
                    cboBenchmarkCompanies.DataBind(); }

    If i then try to retrieve the checked items after pressing a save button, i always get back an empty collection instead of my checked items:
    foreach (var checkedItem in cboBenchmarkCompanies.CheckedItems ){

    What am I doing wrong?

    Unfortunately I couldn't replicate the issue at my end. Please have a look into the sample code snippet which works fine at my end.

    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="cboBenchmarkCompanies" runat="server" CheckBoxes="true"  DataTextField="CountryName" DataValueField="CountryId" />
    <telerik:RadButton ID="radbtnCheckedItems" runat="server" Text="CheckedItems" OnClick="radbtnCheckedItems_Click">

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!IsPostBack)
            DataTable data = GetData(new SqlCommand("SELECT CountryName,CountryId FROM Country"));
            cboBenchmarkCompanies.DataSource = data; ;
    protected void radbtnCheckedItems_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        int checkeditemsCount=cboBenchmarkCompanies.CheckedItems.Count;
        foreach (Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem item in cboBenchmarkCompanies.CheckedItems)
            //your code
    private static DataTable GetData(SqlCommand selectCommand)
        selectCommand.Connection = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString);
        SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter(selectCommand);
        DataTable data = new DataTable();
        return data;

    Please provide your full code if it doesn't help.

    It works when you load the radcombobox from pagebehind. But when you load the radcombobox using 

    webservice and ondemandload it doesn't return any data for checkeditems

    Hi Gauri,

    This is the reason why load-on-demand is listed as a limitation of the checbox feature. The following article lists the other known limitation and also offers a solution:

    I think you should atleas add a message ot error message when ondemand is used along with CheckBox- true

    I used a work around.

    For someone else in the same shoe... here it is....


    I need one to many radcombobox and grid on a page.

    I wrote a function to load the unused values in the radcombobox. i.e. If it has values

    1 abc

    2. bcd

    3 cde

    4 def

    If you add bcd and def next time only abc and cde will be shown in the radcombobox.

    Load radcombobox on page_load using the function

    use the same function to load the combobox after addingthe value or deleting it from the grid.

    Hope it helps others.
