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";
cbo.commitChanges();
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?

Hello,

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

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