We are using the Telerik Not-Editable-AutoComplete-ComboBox in our Silverlight application. The basic functionality appears to work well, however we have received feedback from several beta testers regarding the usability.
They have questioned the way the ComboBox does not present a blinking cursor, when you initially click into the data field. The ComboBox turns yellow, signifying it is in focus, but there is no blinking cursor presented to indicate you can begin entering text. (Note - In order to initiate an AutoComplete, you do have to enter text.)
Quite the opposite is found when you click in the Editable-AutoComplete-ComboBox. A blinking cursor does appear, letting the user know without a doubt that he can begin typing.
I realize the data associated with the Not-Editable-AutoComplete-ComboBox is “Not-Editable”, but on the other hand you do have to enter characters in order to initiate an AutoComplete.
Can you let us know if the Not-Editable-AutoComplete-ComboBox is working as designed and you did not intend it to have a “Blinking Cursor”, or if this is a bug.
If it is a bug, can you give us a timeframe on when this will be fixed or if perhaps you have a workaround.
