    I've a RadComboBox in a Gridview Editform. It is filled from a dataclass in the code behind. When I go to edit mode, how do I set the selected value to that in the database.

    Hello Andy,

     If you are using a custom EditForm with a RadComboBox in it then you can either set the selected index of the combobox as shown below:
          <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server"

     protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e) 
            if (e.Item is GridEditFormItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode) 
                GridEditFormItem editFormItem = (GridEditFormItem)e.Item; 
                RadComboBox combo = (RadComboBox)editFormItem.FindControl("RadComboBox1"); 
                combo.DataSourceID = "SqlDataSource1"
                combo.DataTextField = "ContactName"
                combo.SelectedIndex = e.Item.ItemIndex;
