    I am trying to set the SelectedValue of a RadComboBox that uses declarative databinding.  What I am finding is that the value is not set, as the combobox is not yet databound in the page load event.  This seems to differ with my experience with the standard dropdownlist, which is databound at that point.

    Am I missing something here?  Is this expected behaviour?

    Hello Craig,

    I believe that behaviour is expected. Instead, before setting the SelectedValue, call DataBind on the RadComboBox.

    I hope that helps.
