    i'm a little stuck, after i was able to bind an event _SelectedIndexChanged to a combobox of a editform.
    now i'm receiving the event in a handler ..._SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RadComboBoxSelectedIndexChangedEventArgs),
    but now i'm supposed to feed another column/textbox of the grid with a value based on the selecteed value of the combobox.

    i can imagine (/read somewhere) a solution would be the creation of a custom editform and then using a panel or something to "findcontrol" the textbox, but my editform is generated auto, so is there a way? 
    of course
    Dim editedItem As GridEditableItem = CType(e.Item, GridEditableItem)
    Dim editMan As GridEditManager = editedItem.EditManager
    If (CType(editedItem.Item("Value1").Controls(0), RadNumericTextBox).Text) > 0 then.... etc.

    doens't bind to e.item which is RadComboBoxSelectedIndexChangedEventArgs,
    so can i get to the editForm through RadGrid1.Mastertableview. ...? Or via FIndControl("..") ?

    Hello Reto,

    The edit form of the grid is the naming container of the combo - it can be accessed using sender.NamingContainer in the SelectedIndexChanged event of the combo. Then, you can locate the controls in it as it is explained in the Accessing the value of cells in edit mode section of the Accessing cells and rows help topic.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
