    Hi there,

    How can it be that the item shows as "Sparen & Beleggen" and shows as "Sparen _Beleggen" in the pulldownlist?

    By the way: Why can't I paste (or attach) a (small) picture? One picture often explains more than thousand words.

    I'd like to hear from you.

    Hello Just,

    Thank you for your question.

    Before addressing it, I would like to request a bit more information on your progress with our tools. I see that you have not downloaded our controls yet, buy you seem to be using them actively. Could you share how your evaluation is progressing? How do you find our controls? Do you think that you will be able to implement them in the project you are working on?

    As to your question, you should use double ampersand && to show single ampersand symbol. For more information check this forum thread.


    Best wishes,

    Yes, that's what I already knew from previous projects but in the Telerik combobox it doesn't work correctly.
    • If I apply a single &-sign I end up with a display of "Sparen & Beleggen" as the selected text and "Sparen _Beleggen" in the pulldownlist.
    • If I apply two &-signs I end up with a display of "Sparen && Beleggen" as the selected text and "Sparen & Beleggen" in the pulldownlist.

    That doesn't work either way.

    Hi Just,

    You are correct - this seems to work differently in the textbox and in the drop down. We will research the problem and will try to fix it for the next version.

    John,

    This issue appears to be fixed in the current release. I have a test application up and running in which I've tested both cases. I have added the following items to my test combo box.

    Hello & Hello
    Bye && Bye

    "Hello & Hello" results in "Hello & Hello" being displayed in the text box and in the drop down list.
    "Bye && Bye" results in "Bye && Bye" being displayed in the text box and in the drop down list.

    The _ does not appear to occur in either case now.
