                rcb.DataSource = Datasource
                rcb.DataTextField = "Name"
                rcb.DataValueField = "ID

    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.
