Is there a way to bind .DataValueField when the grid is loaded without navigating to the virtualized entry in the DropDownList? If I have AutoBind set to true, tabbing through the DropDownList works just fine for things "early" in the list that are already loaded. AutoBind does not, however, appear to work for entries that aren't loaded.
I just need the DropDownList to have a value in the data value field so I don't get the "no value" error.
Side note: Turning off validation doesn't help. In this case, if I tab through the field, the DropDownList ends up with no value bound to it; I need the current .DataValueField to be bound to it in this use case.
