Hello,

Straight to your questions:


   1. In order to show a filtered results in the drop down after you set the RadSearchBox text on the server I would suggest the following approach:
//JavaScript
<script type="text/javascript">
    //Put your JavaScript code here.
    function pageLoad() {
        var searchBox = $find("<%= RadSearchBox1.ClientID %>");
        var text = searchBox.get_text();
        if (text != "") {
            searchBox._requestItems(text);
        }
    }
</script>
<telerik:RadSearchBox ID="RadSearchBox1" runat="server"></telerik:RadSearchBox>


   2. Using the RadSearchBox client-side method _requestItems(text) as shown above will make a request to the server in order to retrieve the result set based on the text value set as parameter.
