    I wanted to use "search as you type" functionality ( in a TreeListView, but looks like it doesn't work for it even though it's inherited from GridView.

    I tried it on a new blank project and confirmed my suspicion:

    <telerik:RadTreeListView ShowSearchPanel="True"/>

    doesn't show a search panel, but 

    <telerik:RadGridView ShowSearchPanel="True"/>

    works without any issues.

    Is this intended behaviour, or can we hope for a fix?

    Thank you.

    Hi Kiril,

    Currently, search-as-you-type functionality is supported only for RadGridView. And for the time being, it is not scheduled for implementation for RadTreeListView. Our main concern is that this feature can be applied only on the parent items since the children are not always available and the control knows basically only for the parent items. The same is the case with filtering. Thus, the behavior for searching would have seemed incomplete and not fully functional. 
    I do hope you understand our concern.

    Do you need help with upgrading your AJAX, WPF or WinForms project? Check the Telerik API Analyzer and share your thoughts.
