    I apologize for cross posting but couldn't decide what made the most sense :(

    I need to run a couple of discrete stored proc when I do my update from a grid.  I need to check if the combobox selection indicates a change to one field and if so execute etc.
    I can't for the life of me figure out how to get that value, I tried an selectedindexchanged event and that doesn't seem to work either. I'd be very grateful for a nudge in the right direction as I'm veryyyyyyyyyy rusty :(

    Here's what I tried most recently:

    protected void RadGrid1_UpdateCommand(object source, GridCommandEventArgs e)

    if (e.CommandName == "Update")

    GridEditableItem item = (GridEditableItem)e.Item;
    RadComboBox combo =(RadComboBox)item.FindControl("updateComboBox");
    var status = (string)item.GetDataKeyValue("status");
    if (combo.SelectedItem.Text!= status)
     // Do my update...

    Hello Paul,

    There is already an answer in your other thread on this topic. I would like to suggest you also take a look at the similar FindControl inside RadGrid FormTemplateEditForm forum thread.
