Unfortunately, the RadComboBox is not designed to accomplish such scenario. When a user types in the RadComboBox ( in edit mode) the combo only searches for matches in the items collection.
If you want to send the input text to your view model, I would suggest you to find the TextBox control, placed in the RadComboBox( in edit mode ). You could bind the Text property of the TextBox to yourSubJob property in the ViewModel. For example:
sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
IList<TextBox> textBoxes =
Binding binding =
binding.Mode = BindingMode.TwoWay;
I hope this suits your needs. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information.
