Hello,

With RadNumericTextbox, use the DbValue property rather than the Value property. The "Db" properties differ from the counterparts you usually use in that they do not throw an exception if the new value is null, string, or DBNull. Setting a DbNull value will internally revert the DbNull to an empty value.

You can refer the following documentation for more information.

Thanks,
