We are trying to provide a dropdown list of options to the USER, but also allow them to enter a value not specified in the dropdown. We have bound the combobox column to the database and can successfully save any of the values in the provided list.  However, if the USER enters a value that isn't in the list, it will display until the USER leaves the column. At that point the entered data is cleared and nothing is saved to the DB.

Any thoughts?

Yes this is exactly the same problem I'm having too.

googling for an answere I came up with this in the telerik forum.

"You can set the AllowCustomText property of the RadComboBox to "true" and then the user will be able to type in the input items or text that are not in the list."

this is from this post : http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet/combobox/quot-editable-quot-radcombobox-in-gridview-can-t-use-silverlight.aspx

looks like the person posted a silverlight question in the asp.net section and got the above answere.
Is there an equivalent property to AllowCustomText in a GridViewComboBoxColumn for SilverLight?
