    Telerik says they don't support this out of the box, i am wondering if anyone has any ideas for implementing Accent Folding for a kendo combo box.

    Hello,

    Currently, the ComboBox widget supports client filtering based on the typed text. The "accent folding" functionality is not supported. Nevertheless, you can achieve it using a server filtering. Thus the widget will send the user input and on the server you will be able to map all accents and filter the data in the way you want.

    Selectize.js allowed us to override scoring/search function, so this custom behaviour was implementable by a little script.

    Even a possibility to include an accent stripped version of the displayed text and the ability to define the new "column" (property) as the one on which the search is perfomed would allow us to mimic the desired search behaviour.

    Hello balazs,

    I would suggest you use the filtering event of the widget. This will allow you to intercept the started filtering and rebuild the filter expression. Basically, you will need to get the filter text and replace the symbols with the right one and filter the source manually.
