Hello Abhilash,

You can set the selected index of these controls (and the text for the ComboBox) using the client API of RadRibbonBar. Here's a small example:
<telerik:RadRibbonBar ID="RadRibbonBar1" runat="server" >
    <Tabs>
        <telerik:RibbonBarTab Text="Home">
            <telerik:RibbonBarGroup Text="Button">
                <Items>
                    <telerik:RibbonBarDropDown>
                        <Items>
                            <telerik:RibbonBarListItem Text="item 1" />
                            <telerik:RibbonBarListItem Text="item 2" Selected="true" />
                            <telerik:RibbonBarListItem Text="item 3" />
                        </Items>
                    </telerik:RibbonBarDropDown>
                </Items>
            </telerik:RibbonBarGroup>
        </telerik:RibbonBarTab>
    </Tabs>
</telerik:RadRibbonBar>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function pageLoad() {
        $find("RadRibbonBar1").getTab(0).getGroup(0).getItem(0).set_selectedIndex(0)
    }
</script>

As for databinding, RadRibbonBar supports loading its items through XML

Hi Abhilash,

You can simply use the _setSelectedIndex function instead.
