I am experiencing a strange behavior on the RadDropDownList when its datasource is a DataView.  I created an empty project to eliminate other possible factors.

On initial load, I set the datasource to a global dataview object, as well as the ValueMember and DisplayMember.  The dropdownlist is populated when clicking a single button.  As expected, the data is shown correctly.

If the dataview is refreshed multiple times (button clicked again), the data is shown correctly.  However, if the user drops down the listbox before refreshing the data, the text for the items in the dropdownlist changes to "System.Data.DataRowView".  

I have tried resetting the datasource, displaymember, valuemember, and performing a rebind after refreshing the data.  I still encounter the same issue.

Test code is below.  To see the strange behavior, add "RadDropDownList1.ShowDropDown()"  after refreshing the data.  Or simply display the dropdownlist before clicking the button. 

Possible bug????  This can't be by design.  :-)  This behavior does not occur with the MS dropdownlist control.  I have the latest version (2011.1.11.419).

Imports System.Data.SqlClient
 
Public Class Form1
    Private _dvNames_List As New DataView
 
    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
 
        Dim sSQLConnection As String = "MYSQLCONNECTION"
        Dim oConn As New SqlConnection(sSQLConnection)
        Dim oCommand As New SqlCommand
 
        Dim oDT As New DataTable
        Dim oDA As SqlDataAdapter
 
        Try
            oConn.Open()
            With oCommand
                .Connection = oConn
                .CommandTimeout = 15
                .CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
                .CommandText = "cp_MyStoredProc"
            End With
 
            oDA = New SqlDataAdapter(oCommand)
            oDA.Fill(oDT)
 
            oDT.TableName = "SQLDATATABLE"
            _dvNames_List.Table = oDT
 
        Catch ex As Exception
            Throw New Exception(ex.Message, ex)
        End Try
    End Sub
 
 
    Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        RadDropDownList1.ValueMember = "nameid"
        RadDropDownList1.DisplayMember = "name"
        RadDropDownList1.DataSource = _dvNames_List
    End Sub
End Class

The same problem in my code. Code below generates properly every item, but first item is displayed as "System.DataRow.DataRowView". In debug mode display value is proper, but dropdownlist in runtiem display it wrong.
I'm using latest release of winforms. (2011.1 11.419 (Apr 19, 2011))
public static void FillCB(RadDropDownList cb, object DataSource)
{
    cb.BeginUpdate();
    cb.DataSource = DataSource;
    cb.DisplayMember = "Nazwa";
    cb.ValueMember = "Id";
    cb.SortStyle = SortStyle.Ascending;
    cb.SelectedIndex = cb.Items.First.RowIndex;
    cb.EndUpdate();
}

Hi all,

Thank you for the reporting this issue.

We have observed a similar behavior in the case where the user sets incorrect display member or where the data set is rebuild with different display member.

I cannot reproduce the issue with my test project - please modify my project so that it replicates the issue, or send me your own project which demonstrates your case. This will allow me to undersatand your exact scenario and provide you with further assistance.

Please note that you have to open a new support ticket in order to be able to attach your files.

Greetings,
Peter

Thank you for the sample code.  However, it does not follow the same code that I provided.  Try this code....I will also open a support ticket with the entire solution attached.

Public Class Form1
    Private dv As New DataView
 
    Private Sub RadButton1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles RadButton1.Click
        RefreshData()
        MsgBox("List is good...do not drop down list!")
    End Sub
 
    Private Sub RefreshData()
        Dim dt As New DataTable()
        dt.Columns.Add("Id", GetType(Integer))
        dt.Columns.Add("Nazwa", GetType(String))
        dt.Rows.Add(1, "Aaaa " & Now.Ticks)
        dt.Rows.Add(1, "Bbbb " & Now.Ticks)
        dt.Rows.Add(1, "Cccc " & Now.Ticks)
        dt.Rows.Add(1, "Dddd " & Now.Ticks)
        dt.TableName = "MYTABLE"
        dv.Table = dt
        dt.Dispose()
    End Sub
 
    Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        RadDropDownList1.BeginUpdate()
        RadDropDownList1.DataSource = dv
        RadDropDownList1.DisplayMember = "Nazwa"
        RadDropDownList1.ValueMember = "Id"
        RadDropDownList1.SortStyle = Telerik.WinControls.Enumerations.SortStyle.Ascending
        RadDropDownList1.SelectedIndex = RadDropDownList1.Items.First.RowIndex
        RadDropDownList1.EndUpdate()
    End Sub
 
    Private Sub RadButton2_Click(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles RadButton2.Click
        RadDropDownList1.ShowDropDown()
        MsgBox("Dropdown shown!  Bug will now occur...refreshing data...")
        RefreshData()
    End Sub
 
    Private Sub RadButton3_Click(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles RadButton3.Click
        MsgBox("List is good again...do not drop down list!")
        RefreshData()
    End Sub
End Class

Hi Jason,

Thank you for the provided project.

If has pointed us directly to the issue. Currently, there is no workaround and we will provide fix in our next release scheduled for the middle of July.

I have updated your Telerik points for bringing this issue to us and for the cooperation.

Best wishes,
Peter
