    After much research I still can't figure out how to set the selected value in a resource list. My Resources appear ok, and the correct value is added to the database, but on update, it always selects the 1st data value in the list no matter what the database value. It does not select the "-" unless my data field is null which is correct.

    My appointment population loop below.

    for (int i = 0; i < appCol.Count; i++)
                    Appointment apt = new Appointment();
                    apt.Owner = owner;
                    apt.ID = appCol[i].Id;
                    apt.Start = DateTime.SpecifyKind(Convert.ToDateTime(appCol[i].Start), DateTimeKind.Utc);
                    apt.End = DateTime.SpecifyKind(Convert.ToDateTime(appCol[i].End), DateTimeKind.Utc);
                    apt.RecurrenceRule = Convert.ToString(appCol[i].RecurrenceRule);
                    apt.Description = appCol[i].Description;
                    // load Apppointment Type Resources
                    apt.Resources.AddRange(GetResourcesByType(owner,"Appointment Types"));
                    if (appCol[i].RecurrenceParentId != null)
                        apt.RecurrenceParentID = appCol[i].RecurrenceParentId;
                    int reminderTime = 0;
                    if (Int32.TryParse(appCol[i].Reminder,out reminderTime))
                        Reminder r = new Reminder(reminderTime);
                    if (apt.RecurrenceParentID != null)
                        apt.RecurrenceState = RecurrenceState.Exception;
                    else if (apt.RecurrenceRule != string.Empty)
                        apt.RecurrenceState = RecurrenceState.Master;
                    apt.Subject += appCol[i].Subject;

    Hello TheLostLeaf,

    When you add resources via code-behind you'll need a place to store them. That way each appointment will keep the assigned resource and the combobox will select the right item automatically when appointment is to be updated. 
    In this demo "User" is a resource. Note the UserID property which keeps the information about which User each appointment is assigned to. Please take a look at it and let me know if you have more questions.

    Kind regards,
