    Hi guys,
    I need your professional support.

    The current behaviour of autocomplete logic is to complete typed characters with appropriate string value. I would like to have another behaviour if it is possible: when you type the characters, combobox will show all possible items in dropdown menu of the combobox and user will be able to select the item from the filtered list.

    Thanks in advance,
    Julian

    Hello Julian,

    Did you try setting IsFilteringEnabled=true? As far as I can see, it will provide the behavior you need.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Julian,

    If you are using VirtualizingStackPanel as ItemsPanel the filtering will not work. Otherwise it should work:

    and what about text autocompletion ? I have an issue with that too.
    Lets say that the item in the combo box looks like: 0001 julian forever

    when I type 00...it will be autocopleted with 01 julian forever.
    when I type julian....it doesn't work, event the TextSearchMode property setted to "Contains"

    regards,
    Julian

    Unfortunately the filtering does not work with virtualization and this limitation cannot be workarounded in the current state of the control. We are working on a new version of RadComboBox, that most probably will work as expected (we will have to see if this can be implemented at all), but it will be publicly available as a Beta after the Q1 2011 release in March.

    In addition, the TextBox will not autocomplete when TextSearchMode=Contains. The matching item will be highlighted, though, and the user will be able to select it by pressing Enter or clicking the mouse. The autocomplete is limited because there is no way to make double selection in a TextBox, e.g. you cannot have both selected the first several characters and the last several characters in a TextBox.

    All the best,

    Unfortunately nothing new at the moment. The work on the ComboBox was suspended in favor of RadScheduleView and RadDocking, which are all in the domain of my team.

    Hello!

    Any News regarding the new Combobox - the lack of filtering in combination with virtualization is really annoying.

    Hello Michael,

    A new control named RadAutoCompleteBox will be released with the Q3 2012 version of RadControls for WPF. It will have built in both virtualization and filtering features.
