    I'm used to using the .NET rad combobox in web forms which might be why I'm confused by the silverlight version.  I would like my combox to have autocomplete functionality, but to NOT select the first match.  I think in the web forms version there was a property called "markFirstMatch" which I could set to false.  The problem is that I have RIA domainsources which are binding to the selected item in the rad combobox and when a user types the first letter it finds the first match and then automatically updates the RIA domainsource.  I don't really want that to happen until the user has definitively selected an item in the combobox.  Is there a way to do this in the silverlight rad combobox?

    Hi Travis,

    You could try with setting CanAutocompleteSelectItems=false - however, this will require you to press enter when you want to select the highlighted item. In a similar way you could prevent the Up/Down arrows from selecting items by setting CanKeyboardNavigationSelectItems = false.
