    What is the best way to disable Arrowkeys on a closed RadCombo?

    (open radcombo should still have arrow key functionality)


    I have tried to break selection in a Keypressing event without success,(it should also consider if radcombo is open or not) :


      <script type="text/javascript">

            function combokeypress(sender, args) {
                if (args.get_domEvent().keyCode == 40){

                    args.set_cancel(true); //not working!


      <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" Runat="server" OnClientKeyPressing="combokeypress"  
                ResolvedRenderMode="Classic" TabIndex="1">



     Any hints?

    The client-side OnClientKeyPressing event cannot be cancelled, that is why calling the set_cancel() method in its event handler when the DropDown is not opened would not have the desired effect.
