Hello Mathews,

It's very strange that selection of RadComboBox item is not reflecting sometimes, our examples are tested and work as expected at our side.

You can format a string when it is databinding to the item like this:

<li class="col1"><%# FormatString(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "CompanyName")) %></li> 

 and the FormatString function:

public string FormatString(object text)  
    string strToFormat = text.ToString();  
    //do some formatting  
    return strToFormat;  

Alternatively you can use DataBinder.Eval Method(Object, String, String), the third parameter is a format string.

I am not able to understand what you mean about the second issue. Could you, please, explain in more details?

All the best,
the Telerik team
