    Some of my users are slow typists.  Is there a way to adjust the maximum delay between key strokes before the combobox assumes you are starting a new word?

    In other words, if the following items are bound to the combo box:

    12345
    12346
    12347
    4111

    And the user starts typing 1234, if they pause long enough between the 3 and the 4, the selection will go to the 4111 item.  I want to be able to edit the amount of time they are allowed to take between key strokes before it it assumes they're starting a new search.
    Thanks.

    Hello Aaron,

    Such functionality is not supported in our RadComboBox control but the good news is that we are currently implementing RadAutoCompleteBox control which will have such functionality. The control will be released officially with Q3 2012 version.

    I am considering using the autocompletebox.  Is there an example of how one increases the delay?

    Currently when I attempt to use it if i am a slow typist it fires and, i believe, attempts to return to many values crashing the session unless i stop the script.   I am referencing a table with over a half million rows.  Another thought, is it possible to have it only fire when at least 3 values are entered or something?

    Hello Aaron,

    This feature didn't make it in the current version of RadAutoCompleteBox but we will do our best to implement it in the future releases of the control.

    It is worth mentioning that RadAutoCompleteBox has a built-in virtualization and there shouldn't be any issues if you bind the ItemsSource of the control to a big collection of items, so you shouldn't need to adjust the filtering delay of the control.

    All the best,
