    I am searching for a solution for the following problem.
    I am using the RadComboBox, which has e.g. the following items:

    A
    B
    Ca
    Cb
    Da
    Db
    Dc
    Ea
    Ef

    When I type in a C, I land at the Ca <- Thats correct.
    When I type in a Db, I land at the Db <- Thats correct aswell.
    When I type in a D and hit D another time, I am still at the Da <- Thats not right, as a user I'd like to land at the Db hitting D twice.

    Is there a setting I can make to produce this behaviour?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Jannk,

    I test the described scenario with the latest version of the controls and I was not able to reproduce the issue. Entering "Dd" resulted to an empty drop down. I have attached a sample project which demonstrates my tests - could you please check it and let me know if I have missed anything here.

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hi,

    you haven't understood me correctly I think, I prepared a video (took me a while to convert this to gif) for you aswell, comparing both the silverlight and telerik combobox.

    I type C / D continously, do you see the difference?
    Typing two different letters does the same thing in both controls, but two equal letters does not.. I need the original behaviour... :(

    Hope you understand me now. :)

    Hello Jannk,

    Thanks for the further explanation. I'm afraid that with the current implementation of the ComboBox the desired behavior cannot be achieved. Currently the ComboBox highlights the first matching item and not going to the next one, when you press the same key. However I have logged that in our Feedback portal, so you can easily vote and track its status on the following link:
    http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/143/Feedback/Details/132944-make-the-highlighting-behavior-of-radcombobox-when-typing-identical-with-the-one

    Hope this helps.
