    To test out the RadComboBox I constructed a simple web page that has just this one control on it.  A small datatable (see attachment) is used to populate the control with this code:

    radList.DataSource = CurrentPasses;
    radList.DataTextField = "Description";
    radList.DataValueField = "Master_Idx";

    My initial testing has revealed something strange: When I click on any item, the SelectedIndexChanged event is fired.

    protected void radList_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, RadComboBoxSelectedIndexChangedEventArgs e)

    When I check "e.Text" the correct string is shown.  But when I check "e.Value" it always displays -1.  Why isn't it showing the correct "Master_Idx" value for that row?

    Am I missing something or is this a known bug in the RadComboBox?

    Hi Robert,

    I was able to replicate the issue when the data is bind to the RadComboBox in the Page_Load without having (!Page.IsPostBack). Once I put the databinding in the (!Page.IsPostBack) it worked as expected. Another suggestion is that you can use radList.SelectedValue instead of using e.Value.

    Please elaborate your scenario with your full code if it doesn't help.

    Thanks, Princy.  Putting the DataBinding code inside of the (!IsPostBack) construct solved the problem.

    I now do have another question but it is quite different so I'll post it in a separate topic.
