    Hi All

    I am currently using the method below to poulate a combobox on the page load event:

    Dim dataAdapter as new SetTableAdapter.someidentityTableAdapter
    Dim adapterTable as DataTable
    adapterTable = dataAdapter.getData()
    Radcombo1.DataValueField = "Value1"
    Radcombo1.DataTextField = "Value2"
    Radcombo1.DataSource = adapterTable

    I would like to add a custom attribute to this combo box,
    I am able to achive this in a load on demand senario but not the senario above!
    Would someone be kind enough to point me in the right direction on how to achive this please?

    Also when using custom attributes in this way is it still only possible to get the attributes value client side?

    Many Thanks

    You could add the "Custom Attribute" in ItemDataBound event of RadComboBox. In the ItemDataBound event get the field value and set the custom attribute as shown in the follwoing documentation.

    Hello Cush,

    I would suggest that you take a look at the following help article:Custom Attributes. I believe it describes the diffrent scanarios that may be very helpful to you.

    Best wishes,
