Hi,

I have a combobox which is manually filled with items. These items are read from a query and in a foreach I add the rows, as items, to the combobox. I needed the foreach because I needed to do some more handling etc.

In the combobox are the items shown and I can use the checkbox to select multiple items. But how can I determine which items are checked? Is it possible to itterate troug the items list to see which items are checked? The item itself, the object, doesn't have a IsChecked property or something.

It would be very nice if the combobox would have a combobox.selecteditems collection, this collection should contain all the selected items. This would be very helpfull.

Hello,

The easiest way to get all checked items is to add a IsChecked (or similar) property on your data objects and bind it to the IsChecked property of the CheckBox. Then iterate through the data objects and find those with IsChecked=true.

RadComboBox does not allow multiple selection yet, but this feature is in our plans for the future updates of the control. I am unable to commit to a specific release date, though.

Best wishes,

Valeri,

Thanks for the response. I am aware of your solution.

It just would be nice to get a selecteditems property which gives the user a list of all the checked/selected items.

I am glad that you are working on such a option.
