    Hello.  The RadSearchBox control doesn't seem to be registering the last few inputs on devices that are not on super fast connections.  Within the office on a T1, the control works beautifully fast.  Outside of the office, it seems to miss 1 or 2 of the last letters that were input.  Is there any way to code the control to look for any text chanaged event and to resend the filter request to the server before displaying the results or cancel the search if a keypress is detected and restart the search?  The photo is a screenshot of what is displayed after typing in "Grey", you'll noticed it missed the "y".  On slower mobile devices, it can get worse and miss entire words while it's searching.

    Hello,

    This is a known RadAutoCompleteBox / RadSearchBox issue. When internet connection is slow, the controls trigger multiple simultaneously running queries and only the first result from the first one is displayed. It has been logged for fixing. You can vote for it, comment it and follow its status on its public Ideas & Feedback Portal item.

    Hi Dimitar,

    I understand that this bug will be fixed.  In the meantime, is there another control I can use that will function as expected in areas with slower than normal connections?  I think the only 2 left are dropdownlist and combobox right?  If so, is it possible to use either of those controls with over 20,000+ records?  I don't believe so, I tried and the page either freezes for a very long time or throw an out of memory exception.

    Hi Bryan,

    I would recommend you to use the RadComboBox with load-on-demand and virtual scrolling. Thus, you would be able to load the items in portions. You can refer to the ComboBox - Load on Demand Modes demo and the ShowMoreResultsBox/Virtual Scrolling help article for live examples and additional information.
