    I have a dropdown list that is inside a content template of a radwindow. I am trying to change the selected item in the dropdown list when the window is opened.
    I have tried several things including
    var cbo = $telerik.findControl(document, "RddPayRate");
    cbo.selectedIndex = 0;
    cbo._selectedText = "0.00";
    cbo._selectedValue = "0.00";
    I also tried the set_value method, however it get an error
    Anyone know how I would go about changing the selected item from javascript?

    You have to obtain a reference to the item, and then call the select()​ method of that item:
    var item = cbo.get_items().getItem(0);;

    For more information about the Client API of the control please visit our online documentation:


    Check out the Telerik Platform - the only platform that combines a rich set of UI tools with powerful cloud services to develop web, hybrid and native mobile apps.
