    I have a Combobox that uses a itemtemplate that is bound to a class object and OnSelectedIndexChanged I need to get the dataitem of that item to get the class object but cant seem to get this to work. Any suggestions? 


    <telerik:RadComboBox runat="server" ID="cmbOptions" AutoPostBack="true" EmptyMessage="Please select..." OnSelectedIndexChanged="cmbOptions_SelectedIndexChanged">
                                                <img />
                                                <%#Eval("Text") %>


    private webService.DetailedPart pa;s
    private webService.SessUser su;
       webService.SrvCoreClient service;


        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            su = Common.getSession(Session);
            service = new webService.SrvCoreClient();
            pa = service.GetPart(su.id, partId);
            if (pa.GroupedParts != null)
                cmbOptions.EmptyMessage = pa.GroupedParts.Header;
                cmbOptions.DataSource = pa.GroupedParts.GroupedParts;
    protected void cmbOptions_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxSelectedIndexChangedEventArgs e)
            //How do I get the dataitem of the selected index??

    Hello Christian,

    The DataItems of the individual items is available only during the ItemDataBound event handler. You can use place a asp:Label control inside the ItemTemplate and set the Eval expression to its Text property. Then, you can use the cmbOptions.SelectedItem.FindControl("LabelID") to access the label instance and consequently its Text value.

    I hope this will prove helpful.
