    I'm trying to                   Allow Custom text for only specific comboboxitems inside a radcombobox. Does anyone

    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="MessageDropDown" runat="server" EmptyMessage="" AllowCustomText="true">
                        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Approved By:"/>
                        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Lowest Fare Available"/>
    </telerik   :RadComboBox>

    So for example if I wanted to allow free text only on the Approved By: Entry, what's the easiest way to do this?

    Hi Chuck,

    If you want to allow user to type text only after selecting particular item (Approved By:), and for the rest of items want to make it ReadOnly, then try the following client code in OnClientSelectedIndexChanged event.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function OnClientSelectedIndexChanged(sender, args) {
            var combo = sender;
            if (args.get_item().get_text() == "Approved By:") {
                combo.get_inputDomElement().readOnly = false;
            else {
                combo.get_inputDomElement().readOnly = true;
