I have a gridview column that looks like this...

 

 

 

<telerikGridView:GridViewComboBoxColumn  
            Header="Title" 
            UniqueName="Title" 
            DisplayMemberPath="Title" 
            SelectedValueMemberPath="" 
            DataMemberBinding="{Binding CmsPlayerVideo}" 
            GroupMemberPath="CmsPlayerVideo.Title" 
            SortMemberPath="CmsPlayerVideo.Title" 
            Width="*" 
            IsGroupable="False" 
            IsSortable="True" 
            IsFilterable="True" 
            IsReadOnly="False" 
> 

What I need to do is display a compound value in the combobox as the title is not guarenteed unique and it makes selection difficult. In another part of the code I have a normal Silverlight combobox that I customize this way...

    <ComboBox x:Name="cbPlayer" SelectedItem="{Binding CmsPlayer, Mode=TwoWay}">  
        <ComboBox.ItemTemplate> 
            <DataTemplate> 
                <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">  
                    <TextBlock Text="{Binding LastName}" /> 
                    <TextBlock Text=", " /> 
                    <TextBlock Text="{Binding FirstName}" /> 
                    <TextBlock Text=" - " /> 
                    <TextBlock Text="{Binding Email}" /> 
                </StackPanel> 
            </DataTemplate> 
        </ComboBox.ItemTemplate> 
    </ComboBox> 

What would be the similar construct for use within the RadGrid?

Hello Kenneth Jamieson,

You have control over the visual appearance of the combo via the EditorStyle property of the column.

The attached example demonstrates this  in action ( see the last column ) .
It is for WPF  but I believe it can be  easily adapted for Silverlight as both RadGridVIew for SL and WPF  share a common API.

In case you have troubles adapting this to your project just let me know.

All the best,
