Hello dear Telerik team.
I am using RadDropDownList to let the user choose from four options. Those options are absolutely static, so I create four dropDownItems hardcoded. Each option has its text and image. I can define each item by a lode like :

var radListDataItem1 = new RadListDataItem();
            radListDataItem1.Image = Properties.Resources.SomeImage;
            radListDataItem1.Text = "Sometext";           
            radListDataItem1.Value = someValue;

            var source = new BindingList<RadListDataItem>();

            source.Add(radListDataItem1);

            cmbTriggerType.DataSource = source; //cmbTriggerType is my RadDropDownList

//same for three more items

            cmbTriggerType.SelectedIndex = 0;

And now here comes the question! :)
What should I do to cause your control to render each DataItem  with both text and image visible?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Artem,

Thank you for writing.

This is not the correct way to data-bind the RadDropDownList/RadListControl.
Please take a look at this documentation article about the data-binding.

I would like to suggest to reading this help article about item customizations (adding an image).

I hope this helps.

Greetings,
