Hello!

I found the following problem with the latest (v.2011.2 11.712) RadDropDownList:

The drop-down list is bound to the BindingSource. When I assign the binding source's DataSource to a list, the drop-down list control shows the first item but the SelectedItem and SelectedValue fields are still set to null as well as the SelectedIndex is set to -1. In the earlier version the fields were set to the corresponding values. If I assign the drop-down list's DataSource to a list directly, it works well.
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Windows.Forms;
  
namespace Test
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }
  
        protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e)
        {
            base.OnLoad(e);
  
            List<Data> list = new List<Data>();
            list.Add(new Data() { Value = "A" });
            list.Add(new Data() { Value = "B" });
            list.Add(new Data() { Value = "C" });
  
            radDropDownList1.ValueMember = radDropDownList1.DisplayMember = "Value";
            radDropDownList1.DataSource = bindingSource;
            bindingSource.DataSource = list;
        }
    }
  
    public class Data
    {
        public string Value { get; set; }
    }
}

This is very upsetting issue, because a lot of already tested code places becomes unstable unexpectedly. 

Thank you.

Hello George,

Thank you for writing.

I can confirm this wrong behavior. We will provide fix for it in our SP release at the end of August.
For now as a workaround, you can assign a list directly as a DataSource or set the BindingSource.DataSource first.

We have added points to your account for reporting the issue. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

Regards,
Peter
