    hi,
      i am some new to telerik rad control for asp.net ajax... Now my actual scenario is ...

    -> want to implement a mail system and i want to show the "To address" just like gmail.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       - So when i press a letter the email list filtered with "contains"
       - Want to show email list with multiline textbox ie input area
     
    Actually i implemented with rad combo box and used filter concept. but some constraints i want help

    1. when no text entered don't want to show the drop down
    2. Can i change the input are to multiline  mode?

    Hello Akhil Raj,

    Here is the code that I tried to achieve same functionality. Give a try with this.

    aspx:
     
    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server"  
        DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" MarkFirstMatch="true" 
        DataTextField="mailId" Filter="Contains" EmptyMessage="Type an E-mail" 
        AllowCustomText="true" AutoCompleteSeparator=";" ShowDropDownOnTextboxClick="False"
     
    </telerik:RadComboBox> 
    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:NorthwindConnectionString %>" 
        SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [Details]"
    </asp:SqlDataSource> 
    Also checkout the following demo: ComboBox / Autocomplete

    And I guess multiline combobox is not possible. checkout the forum post which discusses same scenario.
    Multi-line Combo-box
