I have a custom edit form let's call it UserControlForm.ascx. When the user control form loads, I have a dropdown list that I need to pre-populate with data based on some other key values from another row(any row) on that grid(Grid1). I've seen the documentation on how to reference the edited row if the grid is in edit mode, but haven't found anything on how to get values from other rows.

Hello Jeff,

I believe the following article will prove helpful for achieving this requirement:
http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/grid/rows/accessing-cells-and-rows#accessing-controls-in-editinsert-mode

Once you access the UserControl within the ItemDataBound or PreRender event handler of the grid, you can access the combo inside using the FindControl method and apply any desired settings.

Hope this helps. Please give it a try and let me know if it works for you.

Regards,
