    This control rocks.  We had actually written our own version of this and were using it all over the place.  This one is a bit nicer.  Thank you!

    Okay, here's the request:

    Most modern browsers support filtering a list by typing in it.  For example, IE, Firefox, Safari and others natively support typing in a value from a DropDownList to automatically go to that item (as long as you type it character for character).

    I'd LOVE to see that feature here.  Most of my users' first question when they encounter this control is "Why can't I type in it?"

    Keep up the good work!

    Hello MJ,

    There is no functionality to filter items in the RadListBox. It might be better to use the RadComboBox instead, it has the filter functionality built in.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks for the reply.  I realize that the control doesn't support this functionality.  Hence the request. :-)  I have situations where the ListBox is the best overall solution, but lacks this single feature.

    Hi MJ,

    We have this feature logged and will consider implementing it once the demand for it increases to a reasonable level.

    All the best,

    Thanks Simon.

    Hello MJ,

    You are not the only one - there have been a few other requests for this feature. Still there are currently more important tasks in the queue, so we do not have any concrete plans (and resources) for this feature yet.

    Best wishes,
    Simon
