Dear Telerik Team
                             I have a RadComboBox with ItemTemplate as a RadTreeView Control. I have got everything working so far. My problem is I am getting stumped on setting a selected value or text on a Page Load Event after I bind the Tree  which th uer have saved previously. I am trying to set the text property RadCombo1.Text = "something" and it's giving me empty string.  May be I am missing something very obvious. What exactly do I have to do to show the text that has been selected and coming out of the database.

Thanks
Himadri

Hello Himadri Banerjee,

In order to set the Text of the ComboBox you need either to set the AllowCustomText property to true or to select an Item (the Item's Text will become the Text of the ComboBox).

All the best,
