This seems to be happening in more recent versions. With that said, here we go...
So let's say I have a RadComboBox(refered to a RCB from here forward) set up in the following manner:
and it's databound via code in the code behind. All that works fine. Now when my form loads I obviously set RCB value. I have a function to do this:
this also works fine with one caveat. Lets say the RCB is data bound with the following values A, B, C, D. When you bind the RCB it defaults to the 1st in the list being selected. So the Text area of the RCB contains A. Now when I set the RCB via my function to let's say C...the row becomes the selected row, but the Text area of the RCB continues to contain A making it look like the operation of setting the RCB to the proper value didn't work. Subsequently, I've had to add the following code:
Seems a bit ridiculous and redundant to have to add that. If need be, I can setup a whole project to showcase my findings.
