    I am using the NumericUpDown with a binding to a nullable short property on my ViewModel. The NumericUpDown is declared as follows

    <telerik:RadNumericUpDown Value="{Binding Path=CurrentOEMOriginalQuantity, ValidatesOnDataErrors=True}" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="2" Margin="0,0,2,0"
                                                                  NumberDecimalDigits="0" UpdateValueEvent="PropertyChanged" ShowButtons="False" NullValue=""/>

    And the ViewModel property is defined as

    public short? CurrentOEMOriginalQuantity
            if (adapter == null || adapter.CurrentOEMOriginalCost == null)
              return null;
              return adapter.CurrentOEMOriginalCost.QuantityOnHand;
            if (adapter == null || adapter.CurrentOEMOriginalCost == null)
            adapter.CurrentOEMOriginalCost.QuantityOnHand = value;
            RaisePropertyChanged(() => this.CurrentOEMOriginalQuantity);

    However, the value that is displayed on load is a 0.  I put a breakpoint in the getter of the property and it is indeed returning null.

    What am I missing here?

    Hello Jeremie,

    The Type of the Value property of RadNumericUpDown is Nullable<double> and since Nullable<short> is not automatically converted to Nullable<double>, the control always displays its default value - 0. You should use a IValueConverter that converts the two types in the binding to make the application to work.

    All the best,
