Find a control in RowDetailsTemplate

This article demonstrates how to find a control which is placed in the DataTemplate of the RowDetailsTemplate.

Let assume that you have a control (RadComboBox) in the RowDetailsTemplate which you need to set some properties at runtime:

            <telerik:RadComboBox Name="rcbCountries" /> 
            <!-- some other controls here --> 
The best way to do this is to subscribe to the LoadingRowDetails event and find the control there:

<telerik:RadGridView Name="gridView"  
ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource itemsList}}" 
In the LoadingRowDetails event handler use the FindName method of the e.DetailsElement:

private void gridView_LoadingRowDetails(object sender, GridViewRowDetailsEventArgs e) 
    RadComboBox countries = e.DetailsElement.FindName("rcbCountries") as RadComboBox; 
    countries.ItemsSource = GetCountries(); 
Private Sub gridView_LoadingRowDetails(sender As Object, e As GridViewRowDetailsEventArgs) 
    Dim countries As RadComboBox = TryCast(e.DetailsElement.FindName("rcbCountries"), RadComboBox) 
    countries.ItemsSource = GetCountries() 
End Sub
