    Is it possible to search on both columns when user tries to type in the dropdown?
    If you have
    ColA  ColB
    123   ABC

    And user tries to type 123 or ABC then we highlight that row?
    I tried doing this using OnClientItemsRequested and It works fine, but I wanted to check to see if this is already implemented in the control or anyone has a any good ideas...

    Hi Sam,

    RadComboBox supports filtering only by Items' Text properties. As an alternative you can set the Text property to the full text so that the filtering works per your requirement and then in the client-side SelectedIndexChanged event set the Text of the RadComboBox to the desired Text of the selected Item.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team

    In the ItemsRequested event handler you are absolutely able to control the filtering functionality. Please review RadComboBox Load On Demand example  that shows how to implement your own search query based on the typed text.
