I've got a firstname column, and a lastname column...I want to create a property called FullName which returns a combination of the two.

Whats the syntax to create that in my class such that I can set my RadComboBox DataTextField to be FullName (right now it doesnt even see it)

Or is that even possible

Steve, I'm doing things like this adding just a standard Get property on my Persistent Entity Objects.

public string FullName{ 
   get
      return string.Format("{0} {1}"this.FirstName, this.LastName); 
   } 
 

Just make sure you dont put a FieldAlias on the property.  Keeping in mind this is for Eval as Bind is two-way and needs a set method.  I suppose you could put a set and split the string based on the space, but I'm guessing Eval is all you need.

Hmmm...perhaps I'm doing it wrong then...because that's exactly what I have

Server Error in '/' Application.

Invalid column name 'FullName'.

Hello Steve,

You could use the approach that Jeremy Mann proposed to you in order to achieve this goal:
1. Add the FullName property inside the persistent class

public string FullName
{
 get { return String.Format("{0} {1}", this.FirstName, this.LastName); }
}

2. Add an OpenAccessDataSource control inside the ASP.NET page and bind it to the persistent class:
- Configure data source;
- Select the proper persistent class;
3. Add a RadComboBox control and bind it to the OpenAccessDataSource

<telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server" DataTextField="FullName" DataValueField="PersistentClassId"
 DataSourceID="OpenAccessDataSource1">
</telerik:RadComboBox>

You could use the attached solution which we provided to you.
Hope that helps.

Sincerely yours,
