    • With Q2 2011 RadComboBox's empty message shows whenever there is no selected item even if the control is read-only (AllowCustomText=False, EnableLoadOnDemand=False). This has been a highly requested fix for the last couple of Qs in all of our support channels, so we finally implemented it although it may be a breaking change in some of your implementations.

    In case it is a breaking change please consider retaining the previous functionality by using one of the two approaches:
    • for a data bound RadComboBox handle the OnDataBound event and select the first item (if it exists).
    • otherwise select the first item after you add items to the control.
