Hi,

I have a radcombobox who have some item with the same text(ex: Item1, Item1), but both has a different value. But when i want to get the selectedValue of the second one, it always return me the first item value.

Is the a way to return the good value even if there two or more item that has the same text.

Thx for your help,

Guillaume

Hello Guillaume,

I have tried the same and that worked as expected at my end. Here am pasting my code.
aspx:
<telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server"
onselectedindexchanged="RadComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged" AutoPostBack="true">
<Items>
  <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="12345"  Value="1"/>
  <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="12345" Value="2" />
  <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="12345" Value="3" />
  <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="12345"  Value="4"/>
  <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="12345" Value="5" />
  <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="12345" Value="6" />
</Items>
</telerik:RadComboBox>
C#:
protected void RadComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxSelectedIndexChangedEventArgs e)
   {
       Response.Write(RadComboBox1.SelectedValue);
   }

Thanks,
Shinu.

I am having the same issue. If I change the DataTextValue of one of the items such that the DataTextValues are now unique, it will select the correct one. I am setting the datasource in code and calling the databind method instead of manually defining them like the example above.

Hello Tony,

I am not quite sure that I had understood how exactly you have your RadComboBox implemented at your end. Could you specify what DataText and DataValue fields have you set and which are the unique fields. Generally, in order to have the selection correctly behaving, you need to ensure that the Values of the RadComboBoxItems are unique. Please provide us with the implementation that you use at your end, so we could inspect it.
