    I'm trying to do a database lookup based on what the user selects from the radcombobox.  The SelectedIndexChanged event isn't firing. Well, actually, it does fire but I'm not seeing the result of the postback (textbox.text = result) until I change a different field on the form (RadTextBox field). When I change the value of that field the TextChanged event runs and does what it's supposed to and I can then see the result of the SelectedIndexChange event from the combobox.

    <%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="reg.aspx.vb" Inherits="TelerikWebForm" MasterPageFile="~/masterpage.master" maintainScrollPositionOnPostback = "true" %>

            Dim MySQL As String = "SELECT X1,X2 FROM Ytable WHERE [field] = @param"
            Dim MyConn As New Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(strConn)
            Dim Cmd As New Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand(MySQL, MyConn)
            Dim DR As SqlDataReader

            End With
                DR = Cmd.ExecuteReader()
                lblUsernameValidatorMsg.Visible = True
                If DR.HasRows = True Then
                    lblUsernameValidatorMsg.Text = "This username is unavailable."
                End If
            Catch ex As Exception
                'lblUserNameStatus.Text = ex.Message
            End Try
        End Sub

    I omitted some of the fields on the input form for simplicity and changed some of the SQL.  I may have some unmatching divs and stuff like that but you can ignore it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello dino,

    I created a sample page using your code and inspected RadComboBox behaviour - on my side the control raises SelectedIndexChanged as expected.
    Please find the sample attached and give it a try.
    I suppose that there is something specific in your implementation that causes the issue.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
