The Kendo UI Combobox does not support paging or virtual scrolling. In general you can set the minLength
property and turn on the server filtering, so you can reduce the client operations.
Using a Combobox to display thousands of options is not a good approach from UI standpoint, so I would also suggest you to reconsider the way you use the widget in your project.
