    Telerik Team,

    I reviewed your forum and was unable to find anyone that described a similar problem to what I have been experiencing.  This is a very simple issue and I can only presume that I do not have the control configured properly. 

    I have a list of states:

    Tennessee
    Texas
    Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands

    When I give focus to the control and type the letter "T" I expect "Tennessee" to be displayed.  This works as expected.  However, when I type the letter "T" once more, I expect "Texas" to be displayed.  This does not work as expected.  The value remains "Tennessee."  This is the standard behavior for nearly every standard combobox that I , or my clients, have ever used.  This is also the standard behavior of Silverlight's native combobox.  Please tell me I am missing something.

    Thanks in advance

    PD

    Hi Preston,

    Currently we can not provide you with a suitable workaround to this issue, but I would suggest you to use the filtering feature of the ComboBox combined with the OpenDrowDownOnFocus and IsEditable properties. Here is a sample code snippet representing the described scenario:

    <telerik:RadComboBox OpenDropDownOnFocus="True"
                 TextSearchMode="StartsWith"
                 IsFilteringEnabled="True"
                 IsEditable="True"/>
     
    This will make RadComboBox control to open its drop down menu and filter the displayed items corresponding to the entered text.

    More information on filtering in RadComboBox here.

    All the best,
    Vladi

    Has this been resolved?  The PITS link is no longer live.  It has been nearly 2 years.  Surely we have a solution for this now.

    Please advise.
