    Im running in some very strange behavior with the  radcombobox (Telerik 2011Q2).
    I have 2 dropdownlist and a button. Changing the selecting of the 1st box alters the content in the 2nd box. the button does nothing special, just a postback.

    When i change the selection of the first box, the 2nd box gets filled correctly. But when i push the button, the contents of the 2nd box gets alterd, the fist 2 items dissapear and the last 2 get copied and are added to the back.

    <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="ddlbInstituut" runat="server"  AutoPostBack="true" />
    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="ddlbAfdeling" runat="server" CheckBoxes="true" Width="300px"
    <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" />
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Page.IsPostBack = False Then
        End If
    End Sub
    Sub vulInstituutDropdown()
        Dim dsInstituten As DataSet
        dsInstituten = SqlHelper.ExecuteDataset(Conn, "SP_GetInstituut")
        With ddlbInstituut
            .DataSource = dsInstituten
            .AutoPostBack = True
            .ID = "ddlbInstituut"
            .DataTextField = "inst_omschrijving"
            .DataValueField = "inst_id"
        End With
    End Sub
    Private Sub vulAfdelingDropdown()
        Dim dsAfdelingen As DataSet
        dsAfdelingen = SqlHelper.ExecuteDataset(Conn, "SP_GetAfdelingen", ddlbInstituut.SelectedValue)
        With ddlbAfdeling
            .ID = "ddlbAfdeling"
            .DataSource = dsAfdelingen
            .DataTextField = "afde_omschrijving"
            .DataValueField = "afde_id"
        End With
    End Sub
    Protected Sub ddlbInstituut_SelectedIndexChanged1(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ddlbInstituut.SelectedIndexChanged
    End Sub

    The storedprocedures always cough up the correct data.

    When useing radListBox, same problem, enabeling or disabeling the checkboxes makes no difference, when useing conventional dropdownlists, no problems whatsoever.

    Please help.

    Hi It-Workz,

    Please try to clear the items of the second combobox before you bind it with another data. This could be done with the Clear method of the items collection property.

    In case this suggestion is not helping, open a support ticket and provide a sample page with the issue being reproduced.

    I did use the clear() method, but the wrong one:
    dlbAfdeling.Controls.Clear()  instead of ddlbAfdeling.Items.Clear()

    useing the right one solved it

    My bad, thanks for the help.
