I'm using DevExpress for some controls in my ASP.Net application (C# code behind). I'm trying to set of the combo box properly, just like the normal dropdownlist with ASP.Net. The combo box feeds off of a SQL Server view. It is on a form used to edit existing records. But combo box does not seem to have a SelectedValue property to bind. Any ideas on how to do that?

The problem is that when using a combobox, the user could delete the value or type in a value that is not in the list.  Sure, you could validate it and stop them from proceeding, but the combobox was designed to allow this.  It sounds like you really want the listbox functionality here.

Nevertheless, to get the currently selected value:
comboBox1.Text
