    I am having a problem with autocomplete functionality of the RadComboBox when the combobox receives focus by tabbing into it. Everything works fine if you click into the combobox to give it focus. I was able to reproduce this problem using the following autocomplete demo:

    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/combobox/examples/functionality/autocompleteclientside/defaultcs.aspx

    First, unselect the Allow custom text option button. If you then click on the Autocomplete Separator combobox and hit TAB to send focus to the main combobox and type the letter 'a', nothing happens. When you type any other letter, for example 'z', the first 'a' entry is selected, in this case 'alejandra@telerik.com'.

    I reproduced using IE 8. I have not looked into other browsers.

    We have several forms in our application where the user will tab through and enter values. This autocomplete bug will surely be an issue for them. Thanks.

    Hi Damian,

    This sounds like the same bug that I reported to Telerik last week in a support ticket.  In that ticket they confirmed that it was a bug.  Here is a link to the post, along with a solution for you.

    Hopefully this helps!
