Hi,

I’m calling an asynchronous WCF service and adding the items into the RadComboBox.  I would like to call the same service as I am typing in the RadComboBox (text passed as a parameter to the service) and auto fill and display the results. Please advise.

Thanks
RJ

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us.

I would suggest you to handle TextInputStart event. It fires every time when you type a single character in RadComboBox when is in edit mode. Then you could get the inputted text via Text property of the arguments and make a call to the service. 

I hope this helps.

All the best,
George

Hi George,

I could not find the TextInputStart event. However, I’m calling the WCF service asynchronously from the PreviewKeyUp event of the combobox and adding the items at runtime.  I have the following properties turned on

SelectedIndex="0"

OpenDropDownOnFocus="true"

IsFilteringEnabled="True"

StaysOpenOnEdit="True"

TextSearchMode="Contains"

I can view the added items in the combobox but I can’t select the items from the list. The AutoComplete/filter is also not working. Can you suggest anything?


Thanks
RJ

Hello RJ,

Thank you for your reply.

The correct properties are set for the filtering. There is no reason for it to not work. Could you please try to strip your application and send it to us. In that way we will be able to investigate the cause of the problems in a timely manner.

Looking forward to your reply.

Regards,
