I want to find the ComboBox and bind combo box with some values so that While inserting record , the end user can choose a value to insert or save

<p style=" background-color: #fff;"><span style=" "><span style=" margin-left: 0px !important;"><code style="color: #000;"></code></span></span></p><p style=" background-color: #fff;"><span style=" "><span style=" margin-left: 0px !important;"><code style="color: #000;"> protected void SumInsGrid_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)<br>        {<br><br>            GridDataItem dataItem = e.Item as GridDataItem;<br><br>            if (e.Item is GridEditFormInsertItem)<br>            {<br>                RadComboBox Name = (RadComboBox)e.Item.FindControl("Name");<br>                BindComboBox(Name);<br>            }</code></span></span></p><p style=" background-color: #fff;"><span style=" "><span style=" margin-left: 0px !important;"><code style="color: #000;">            else if (e.Item is GridEditFormItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode)<br>            {</code></span></span></p><p style=" background-color: #fff;"><span style=" "><span style=" margin-left: 0px !important;"><code style="color: #000;">                     ...........</code></span></span></p><p style=" background-color: #fff;"><span style=" "><span style=" margin-left: 0px !important;"><code style="color: #000;">                     RadComboBox Name = (RadComboBox)e.Item.FindControl("Name");<br style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-family: monospace;">                     BindComboBox(Name);</code></span></span></p><p style=" background-color: #fff;"><span style=" "><span style=" margin-left: 0px !important;"><code style="color: #000;">                     ...</code></span></span></p><p style=" background-color: #fff;"><span style=" "><span style=" margin-left: 0px !important;"><code style="color: #000;">            }</code></span></span></p><p style=" background-color: #fff;"><span style=" "><span style=" margin-left: 0px !important;"><code style="color: #000;">    }</code></span></span></p><p style=" background-color: #fff;"><span style=" "><span style=" margin-left: 0px !important;"><code style="color: #000;"></code></span></span></p>

 

While Editing findControl method works by returning the ComboBox object but not While Inserting. I want to bind values programmatically to the RadComboBox.

Hello Siva,

The most straightforward way of achieving combo editing is placing a combo control inside the EditItemTemplate of GridTemplateColumn or FormTemplate:
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/columns-rows/columns/column-types/defaultcs.aspx


And make avail of the SelectedValue property and the Bind expression:
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/data-editing/form-template-update/defaultcs.aspx

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/vstudio/ms178366%28v=vs.100%29.aspx


Alternatively, you can use GridDropDownColumn:
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/columns-rows/columns/column-types/defaultcs.aspx
http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/grid/columns/column-types#griddropdowncolumn

The GridDropDownColumn generates a combo control only during insert or edit mode:
http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/grid/how-to/customize-griddropdowncolumn

Therefore, you can access it only during these modes:
http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/grid/rows/accessing-cells-and-rows#accessing-controls-in-editinsert-mode

If you use GridTemplateColumn approach, you can also bind the combo using its DataBinding event handler:
http://www.telerik.com/forums/grid-filter-contains-not-finding-anything#ZhplbQLMI0iOiGnkWdM0OQ

I hope this will prove helpful.
