    Hi All,

    I'm very new to Telerik controls but have a pretty good grasp of programming. I'm missing something here. I am taking over a project from another programmer and need to conditionally set a combo box value. It seems that the value is getting set because the behavior of a dependent control indicates that, but the text of the combo is not populated with the text of the item coresponding to the selectedvalue.

    Here is a snippet. I only want to populate and set if there is a pdiv value, otherwise I have the EnableLoadOnDemand behavior (I guess that's what it's called when you type in the combo and it looks the matching values up):


    if (pdiv.Length > 0)




    //make sure it's populated



    null, new RadComboBoxItemsRequestedEventArgs());



    //set the value and text


    rcbPDiv.SelectedValue = pdiv;

    rcbPDiv.Text = pdivText;



    Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi Robert,

    Can you post more of the code as an attachment and let me know what value the combo box value is getting set as? I'm sure we can get this sorted out for you quickly.

    In addition, having the configuration (full tag definition + any properties set through code) of the RadComboBox will also help us a lot with determining the problem.
