    Hello,

    Maybe someone know how to turn off shortcut for right ALT in TextBox Control.
    In Poland we use it with special characters like "śćżźą" . I check attribute EnableKeyMap = False, but still cant use it.
    It work like ctrl.

    Hello Krzysztof,

    Thank you for writing.

    I tested both RadTextBox and RadTextBoxControl with Polish (programmers) keyboard I was able to enter the mentioned characters with the AltGr key. The only issue that I was able to reproduce was that in RadTextBoxControl if you type more that one "ą" it will delete the content of the control. This case it added in our Public Issue Tracking System and you can track its status here: http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/winforms/14697

    Because of the issue, I would suggest that you use RadTextBox in your application to allow typing in Polish characters. 

    Attached video demonstrates how I am typing polish chars in both controls while holding right Alt. 

    I hope this helps. 

    All the best,
    Anton

    Hi,

    Which version of telerik you use in this test?. (My version : 2012.2.912.20)
    The texbox work great, but I check that only Text Box Control has this problem.
    Evenmore, I download your example of RadControl for WinForms and there is the same problem.

    Hello Krzysztof,

    Thank you for writing back.

    When we are responding to forum thread we always providing solution tested with the last version (currently 2013.1 321) unless you specify the version that you use.

    However I tested RadTextBox and RadTextBoxControl with version 2012.2.912.20 and I can confirm that there is issue with RadTextBoxControl while typing Polish chars. However, this issue is already resolved in version (2012.3.1017). So the solution in your case is to use RadTextBox, instead of RadTextBoxControl or to upgrade to our latest release.

    I hope this information helps. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Regards,
    Anton

    The problem still exists. We are using Telerik Q2 2014, the test was made on clean project (one form with RadTextBoxControl). Pressing left alt + a on RadTextBoxControl cleans text on RadTextBoxControl. Not on second attempt, just on first. We are using RadTextBoxControl for autocomplete, RadTextBox do not have autocomplete, so we don't want to use RadTextBox. Any chance to fix this failure?

    Best Regards

    Hello Jacek,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can track the issue progress , subscribe for status changes and add your vote/comment to it on the following link - feedback item. We will do our best to address it in the upcoming release.

    You can use RadTextBox instead. Here is a sample code snippet, demonstrating how to enable to default auto-complete functionality for the RadTextBox:
    this.radTextBox1.AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.SuggestAppend;
    this.radTextBox1.AutoCompleteSource = AutoCompleteSource.CustomSource;
    TextBox tb = this.radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.TextBoxItem.HostedControl as TextBox;
    tb.AutoCompleteCustomSource.AddRange(
        new string[]
        {
            "one",
            "two",
            "three"
        })
    ;

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.

    Regards,
