Hi,

If I bind to a datatable, how can I get the ID of the selected item in the combo box. I have added the following code

Dim pobjTable As New Data.DataTable

pobjTable.Columns.Add("ID")

pobjTable.Columns.Add("Name")

pobjTable.Rows.Add(1001, "User A")

pobjTable.Rows.Add(1002, "User C")

pobjTable.Rows.Add(1003, "User B")

RadComboBox1.DataSource = pobjTable

RadComboBox1.DisplayMember = "Name"

So if User C is selected, I would like to get 1002 back as the ID.

Note: This is possible in the VB.Net Combo Box if you create a class to store the ID and the Text Value. You can add an object to the List and return the Object once selected.


Best Regards
Eddie

Hi Eddie,

Yes, this is possible with our RadComboBox. You just have to set the ValueMember property to "ID". Then you can access the corresponding value for the currently selected item through the SelectedValue property.

If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to write us again.
