Hello,

<telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server" MarkFirstMatch="true" EmptyMessage="--Select--">
           <HeaderTemplate>
               <table ellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
                   <tr>
                       <td style="width: 150px;">
                           First Name
                       </td>
                       <td style="width: 150px;">
                           Last Name
                       </td>
                   </tr>
               </table>
           </HeaderTemplate>
           <ItemTemplate>
               <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
                   <tr>
                       <td style="width: 150px;">
                           <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "Attributes['FirstName']")%>
                       </td>
                       <td style="width: 150px;">
                           <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "Attributes['LastName']")%>
                       </td>
                   </tr>
               </table>
           </ItemTemplate>
       </telerik:RadComboBox>


protected void bindCombo()
    {
       
        for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
        {
            RadComboBoxItem item = new RadComboBoxItem();
 
            item.Text = i + "Text";
            item.Value = i + "Value";
            item.Attributes.Add("FirstName", i + "FirstName");
            item.Attributes.Add("LastName", i + "LastName");
 
            RadComboBox1.Items.Add(item);
 
            item.DataBind();
        }
    }

Hi Mohamed,

In order to achieve the desired functionality, you could create your own RadComboBoxItems and after setting the desired attributes and values, you could add them to the RadComboBoxItemCollection. Here you could find our help article about using the RadComboBoxItems at server side.

Kind regards,
