    Hello, the Radautocompletebox is a great control, but we face the following issue: I would like to know if/how if would be possible to show all possible choices, without any filter.

    To be more clear, if my Radautocompletebox has 4 choices : AA, AAB, CC, EE, is there a way to display theses choices to the users (i.e. to open the selection menu) without any filter? Of course if I type A, I will see AA and AAB, but if a user has no idea of the posisble choices there is an issue.

    I tried to use for example the keydown event, and to open the menu if the user types 'enter', but without sucess.

     

    I know that what I am asking is not ready in line with the expected use of the component...

    Hello Pierre,

    Thank you for writing. 

    According to the provided information, I think that RadCheckedDropDownList is the appropriate control for your scenario. It combines RadDropDownList and RadAutoCompleteBox in order to provide functionality to check items in the drop down area and tokenize them in the text area. Thus, by using the arrow button, you can display all available options. In addition, when you start typing, a filter items list will be displayed. Additional information for RadCheckedDropDownList is available here: http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/dropdown-listcontrol-and-checkeddropdownlist/checkeddropdownlist/checkeddropdownlist 

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.

    Regards,
    Dess
