    Generally a stored procedure will be more efficient than raw sql when querying a sql server database. I'm just wondering does it effect the load on demand feature of RadComboBox in any way?

    As I don't understand the method it's using to pull down partial results from the database, I don't know which is more efficient. Am I better off setting up a SqlDataSource with a select statement in it or just point it at a stored procedure - does it make any difference?

    In general stored procedures are a batch of SQL statements that can be executed in a couple of ways. So the stored procedure is actually a set of SQL queries. I believe that in performance aspect there will be no significant difference but the stored procedures gives lots of different benefits. I would like to encourage you to review the following help article that explains some good aspects of using the stored procedures.
