In bound mode, use the following APIs to rebind an editor on each request:

  • Enable the ASPxListEdit.ForceDataBinding property if you use the DataSourceID property to bind the editor to a data source.

  • Use the DataBind method if you use the DataSource property to bind the editor.


Use the client-side InsertItem(index, text) method to add a new item and set the EnableSynchronization property to true to set specific field values for the newly inserted items on the server side.

<dx:ASPxComboBox ID="ComboBox1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" ValueType="System.String" EnableSynchronization="True" ...>
    <ClientSideEvents Init="OnComboboxInit" />
        <dx:ListBoxColumn FieldName="TestName" Caption="Test Caption" />
function OnComboboxInit(s, e) {
    s.InsertItem(0, "Text1", "Value1");
