I had an unsual issue I ran into. When filling a combobox text property from a database pull, my database was coming back with a value of "<no company>" and filling the combobox text property. When I tried to save data back to the database I get the following error, in my studio window (in attached file). If I manually remove the "<" character it is fine. I think the control somehow is having problems accepting the "<" character. It's an unusual condition but still may cause issues for users.

Hi Kevin Kess,

This is strange - I was unable to reproduce this with a simple RadComboBox. Could you please see the attached page and let me know if I need to modify/add something else to trigger the issue.

Sincerely yours,

Hello Kevin,

The issue is with ASP.NET not allowing tag-like text from being submitted. The easy way to resolve this issue is to set ValidateRequest="false" in the <%@ Page %> tag at the top of your page.

I hope that helps.
