    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>();


                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.
