    I am trying to replicate my ajax control toolkit autocompletes with the telerik version of the autocomplete.  I have everything working but one portion of it.  I have the control set to select one item only and the control to postback.  On text change I would like to populate the page with a users information from the value of the autocomplete box, but the text_changed event seems not to work for this control as I get no value in teh response.write

    Protected Sub radAutoComplete_TextChanged(sender As Object, e As AutoCompleteTextEventArgs) Handles radAutoComplete.TextChanged
          Dim value As String = radAutoComplete.Entries(0).Value
      End Sub

    I do get a value if I attach to a linkbutton and do it this way, however then they have to pick on a button to produce results.  Currently on my Ajax toolkit autocompltes it is able to show results on a text_changed event.  So is there a way to do this with telerik autocomplete.
    Protected Sub lnkView_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles lnkView.Click
           Dim value As String = radAutoComplete.Entries(0).Value
       End Sub

    Hello Kevin,

    I tired to replicate the described issue, but to no avail. Therefore, I had prepared  sample project for you, base on the provided code snippet, demonstrating the behavior at my end. Would you give it a try at your end and let me know if I had missed something. Please find the attached sample project.
