Hi Telerik Support,
I am having a problem with RadComboBox. I am not able to select the first item of RadComboBox programmatically. I have instantiated a RadComboBox with 2 columns. I am giving user the ability to filter combo box based upon items present either in column 1 or 2. The search criteria may not necessarily appear in the beginning of the dropdown items, it may appear anywhere in the text. For example I have a dropdown with 2 columns with first column having "Project Engineer" and second "VAC-1001". My user types "1001" as search criteria
and system brings one record, but that record (RadComboBoxItem) is not being selected.
I have set MarkFirstMatch property to "true". I tried setting SelectedItem to its text but getting below error:
"Property 'SelectedItem' is 'ReadOnly'."
I also tried using SelectedIndex, but that is also not working. Please help me select the first item. I am using 2010.2.713.35 verion of Telerik.Web.UI and Telerik.Web.Design.
RadComboBox.Items.Count > 0
RadComboVacancyList.SelectedIndex = 0
