Telerik RadGrid not populating my dropdown and monthyearpickers with correct info.

Hello again Experts,
Here's another question about using the RadGrid provided by telerik. v.3.5. I have a radgrid set up for address history information. My "Update" and "Insert" commands and "Add new record" and all that is working fine, but when I click the Edit command column on a certain row to edit that row of data, I can't get the States dropdown to populate the right state in there. It just keeps populating with Alabama just like if you clicked the "Add new record" button to add a new row of data. Everything else is working fine as far as connecting to my SQL database and everything. The RowID is working like a champ, I just can't get it to stick the right state in there, for example, if that row of data is 101 somewhere, somecity NY, it doesn't populate with NY but AL again. Driving me crazy. Also, I have 2 Peter Blum MonthYearPickers embedded in the RadGrid so the client can select the FromDate and the ToDate that they lived at a particular address and it's not populating those either, they're just populating with the computer's time as of today.

Thanks, RunForrestRun

have a look at this thread off the telerik site. there's a zip with sample code also...and the same technique should also work for the MonthYearPickers as well...

ps...

EE is definitely the place to go for most programming questions...but the telerik support team is really on the ball for answering questions specific to their controls

Thanks samtran0331, many points to you,
I ended up submitting a support ticket to Telerik and they emailed me some more code that I added to the ItemDataBound event in the lines that are at the bottom starting with Dim editedItem As GridEditableItem.
Also, to get the MonthYearPickers to work I emailed Peter Blum and what I was doing wrong was, I had "text" instead of "xDateTime" on this line xDateTime='<%# DataBinder.Eval( Container, "DataItem.FromDate" ) %>'. Peter had me to change that and now everything is working GREAT whenever I click the "Edit" button to edit a row of information. Hope this helps someone in the future.
 

Private Sub ResHistoryGrid_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As  Telerik.WebControls.GridItemEventArgs) Handles ResHistoryGrid.ItemDataBound

        If (TypeOf e.Item Is GridEditableItem AndAlso e.Item.IsInEditMode) Then

            Dim item As GridEditableItem = e.Item

            'access/modify the edit item template settings here

            Dim ddl_StateHistory As Telerik.WebControls.RadComboBox =     item.FindControl("ddl_StateHistory")
            dbCnx.Open()
            dbCmd = New SqlCommand("SELECT StateCode, StateName FROM State_List ORDER BY StateName", dbCnx)
            dbRdr = dbCmd.ExecuteReader
            ddl_StateHistory.DataSource = dbRdr
            ddl_StateHistory.DataValueField = "StateCode"
            ddl_StateHistory.DataTextField = "StateName"
            ddl_StateHistory.DataBind()
            dbRdr.Close()
            dbCnx.Close()

            Dim editedItem As GridEditableItem = CType(e.Item, GridEditableItem)
            Dim boxState As Telerik.WebControls.RadComboBox = CType(editedItem.FindControl("ddl_StateHistory"), Telerik.WebControls.RadComboBox)
            boxState.SelectedValue = DataBinder.Eval(e.Item.DataItem, "State").ToString()

        End If

    End Sub 'ResHistoryGrid_ItemDataBound
