    The dropdownlist does not seem to find a value when I have a repeating character.

    For example, I'm looking for a last name of "Allen".  I start typing "al" and the first occurrence with of a name beginning with "Al" is highlighted.  When I type the next "l", it jumps to the first occurrence of a name that begins with "L".

    A regular html dropdownlist does not seem to behave this way.

    I've tried fiddling with the delay option but it doesn't seem to help.

    thanks

    Hello William,

     
    The DropDownList does support seaching items by repeating character. Like the SELECT element, the widgets loops through items which starts with the pressed character - in your case "A". When "Al" is pressed the widget will show the first occurrence in the list, not the next available. This is expected behavior. If you need to change in the current behavior I will suggest you share your thoughts on our Kendo UserVoice page.

    Thank you,

    I'm fine with the functionality.  I just needed verification to take back to our project group that this was the expected behavior.
