    HI

    I found a small problem while implementating Cascading ComboBoxes : 

    ComboBox - Cascading ComboBoxes
    http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/combobox/examples/functionality/multiplecomboboxes/defaultcs.aspx

    The ComboBox Items example as below :

    1.Eastern-1234567890ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
    2.Western-1234567890ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
    3.Northern-1234567890ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
    4.Southern-1234567890ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

    First dropdown the combobox, you'll see that the item was wrapped to 2 lines automatically,
    then select 1.Eastern-... then move the caret to LMN position.

    Second dropdown the combox and select 2.Western-... you'll find that the carent still focus on LMN position.

    The problem is - Could RadComboBox focus to first character automatically after selection ? 
    When RadComboBox with long string items, users will confused if long string is ends with spaces.

    In Sample.mdf you can find the table dbo.Region, the value of RegionDescription is ends with a long space string :

    "Eastern                                           "
    "Western                                           "
    ...
    (see C:\Program Files\Telerik\UI for ASP.NET MVC Q3 2015\wrappers\aspnetmvc\Examples\VS2012\Kendo.Mvc.Examples\App_Data\Sample.mdf )

    Maybe I can set RadComboBox.DropDownWidth to larger value 
    but when user dropdown/select then move the carent to LMN position the problem is still the same.

    Best regards

    Chris

    And there have a bug in sample :

     

    ComboBox - Cascading ComboBoxes

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

     

    When user select the City then change the Contry, the Items/Text of RadComboBox-City is not cleared.

    Hello Chris,

    I am afraid that I do not understand your exact scenario described. Are you referring to a sample project that you missed to attach? I would suggest you to open a Support ticket and attach a runnable sample application to it, which could be used to reproduce your exact scenario. You can find guidelines how to prepare such a sample in the Isolating a problem in a sample project help article.

    As for the demo issue, thank you for bringing it to our attention. I will log it for demo improvement.

    HI

    ComboBox caret position problem

    ComboBox items sample (Notice : long string) :

    "Eastern-1234567890ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ"
    "Western-1234567890ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ"
    "Northern-1234567890ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ"
    "Southern-1234567890ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ"

    1.dropdown/select any item then move caret to the end of item.

    2.dropdown/select other item then you'll find the caret position is not at the start :

    "HIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ" <- Eastern ? Western ? Northern ? Southern ? 

    After select, ComboBox should move the caret to the start of item string automatically.

    Best regards

    Chris

    Hi Chris,

    Please take a look at the Set Caret Position at the Beginning of the Input in IE help article, which provides a workaround for the issue.
