Hi,

I have browsed tru the documentation but i cant find an example on this.
We have RadComboboxitem.Text different from RadComboxitem.Value. If i am using a ObjectDataSource to populate my ComboBox, how do i populate both the Text and Value? Can i use a genericListOf or a HashTable instead of collection/Arraylist so i can store a Pair of value.



Thanks,
Rgds,
Andy

Hello andy,

You need to set the DataTextField and DataValueField properties of the combobox.
We will update our documentation to reflect that.

Thanks alot!
although I had discarded the usage of datasource, and had changed to use item_requested (For OnDemand) or page_init to load my combobox. :)
