"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

maybe this will work.

You do not think this is possible on the client side?

Sorry I didn't notice you were looking for JavaScript. Maybe this post will give you some insight.

function BindListToCombo(cbo, list) {
   $.each(list, function (a, item) {
      var comboItem = new Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem();
var comboItem = $find(cbo).findItemByValue(0);;}
