    I have a radcombobox in a form page:
    <head runat="server">
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
            <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
            <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" />
            <telerik:RadComboBox ID="cbxProva" runat="server">

    VB code:

    Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            cbxProva = CaricaComuni("LE")
        End Sub

     i want to populate the control with external module

    this is the code in the module:
    Public Function CaricaComuni(ByVal Provincia As String) As RadComboBox
           CaricaComuni = New RadComboBox
               Dim sql As String
               sql = "SELECT IdComune, Comune FROM Sys_Comuni WHERE Provincia = @Provincia AND RecordEliminato = 0 ORDER BY Comune"
               Dim adapter As New SqlDataAdapter(sql, connStr)
               adapter.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add("@Provincia", SqlDbType.Char).Value = Provincia
               Dim dt As New DataTable()
               CaricaComuni.DataSource = dt
               CaricaComuni.DataTextField = "Comune"
               CaricaComuni.DataValueField = "IdComune"
               CaricaComuni.Items.Insert(0, New RadComboBoxItem("", ""))
           Catch ex As Exception
               'MessageBox(ex.Message, ex.StackTrace.Substring(ex.StackTrace.LastIndexOf("\") + 1))
           End Try
       End Function

    When i press the button the debug is good, if i control in debug mode the combox response correctly populate:


    But the combobox in the page is empty...

    Hi Fabio,

    In order to bind your combobox using custom function as it's in your scenario, you should pass a reference to the existing RadComboBox as an input parameter to this function.

    All the best,
