    Hi Dmitrijs,

    The RadComboBox cannot be used exactly as an autocomplete TextBox, but you can use the filtering feature and the OpenDropDownOnFocus property to accomplish this. Here is a sample code representing this:

    <telerik:RadComboBox Width="100" IsEditable="True" TextSearchMode="Contains" IsFilteringEnabled="True" OpenDropDownOnFocus="True">
        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Content="Alapattah" />
        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Content="Brickell Avenue" />
        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Content="Downtown Miami" />

    To remove the drop down arrow of the RadComboBox you need to customize the RadComboBoxStyle and edit the ArrowTemplateEditableCombobox template.

    More details on Styles and Templates in this article.

    Hope this helps.
