Hi,

I am populating a GridViewComboBoxColumn in RadGridView with data from an ArrayList.

How to set a default value on the column (using index from ArrayList or maybe just using string compare) on grid load?

Please advise.

Hello, Anders,

RadGridView offers a CellEditorInitialized event which gives you access to the activated editor (RadDropDownListEditor) and can adjust any settings you want. The RadDropDownListEditorElement.SelectedIndex property allows you to specify what item to be selected in the drop down once it is initialized.

The following forum thread is quite useful on this topic: https://www.telerik.com/forums/radgridview---default-option-in-gridviewcomboboxcolumns#2156205 

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
