I used BindingList for data binding,

BindingList<Person> personList = new BindingList<Person>();
radMultiColumnComboBox1.DataSource = personList;

 

RadMultiColumnComboBoxElement multiColumnComboElement = this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.MultiColumnComboBoxElement;

multiColumnComboElement.EditorControl.MasterTemplate.AutoGenerateColumns = false;

GridViewTextBoxColumn column = new GridViewTextBoxColumn(); 
column.HeaderText = "ID";

column.FieldName = "id";

column.Name = "colId";
multiColumnComboElement.Columns.Add(column); 
column = new GridViewTextBoxColumn(); 
column.HeaderText = "Name";
column.FieldName = "name";
column.Name = "colName";
multiColumnComboElement.Columns.Add(column); 

Let Person object have two properties, id and name. I set ValueMember to id and DisplayMember to name.

And I set the SelectedValue,

radMultiColumnComboBox1.SelectedValue = person.id;

This is working correctly. But when person.id become null, SelectedValue is not null, instead it select first item of BindingList<Person>.

I can't understand why. Pls answer to me.

Hello, AungKo,

Thank you for writing.  

Firstly, I would like to note that it is important to set the AutoGenerateColumns property to false before setting the DataSource property. Otherwise, you will have duplicated columns.

As to the question about the SelectedValue property, note that it will be set to the valid value considering the specified ValueMember. If you set the SelectedValue property to a value that is not present in the DataSource it won't be changed at all. That is why if you need to clear the selection, set the RadMultiColumnComboBox.SelectedIndex property to -1. I have attached a sample project for your reference.

I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.

Regards,
Dess

Roland, I am not quite sure what do you mean with "moved my question to the WPF forum". However, our forum doesn't have any default functionality for moving a question from one product forum to another. If you need to ask the Telerik WPF community a question, it would be necessary to submit a forum thread in the previously referred WPF forum. 

If I missing anything, please provide some more details so I can understand better your point and provide any further assistance if possible. Thank you for your understanding.
