RAD COMBO BOX
            rcb.DataSource = Datasource
            rcb.DataTextField = "Name"
            rcb.DataValueField = "ID
            rcb.DataBind()

When I try to read the value "SelectedValue" it's blank.
I have to populate another combo box/Grid based on default value selected during first load.

Hello Sanjay Singh,

You should subscribe to the OnDataBound event of the RadComboBox and then get the SelectedValue like this:

protected void RadComboBox1_DataBound(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        string selectedValue = RadComboBox1.SelectedValue;
        string selectedItem = RadComboBox1.SelectedItem.Text;
        MessageBox.Show("Selected item is: " + selectedItem + " with value: " + selectedValue);
    }

Find the full code in the attached .zip file.

Hope this helps.
