    I can't remove token from their autocompletebox,when the token is too long (see the picture attached).


    Here is my code : 

    <telerik:RadAutoCompleteBox runat="server" ID="radAutoCompleteBoxSelectionSite" 
                        DropDownAutoWidth="Enabled" Filter="Contains" Visible="True" CausesValidation="False" AutoPostBack="True"
                        Width="100%" EmptyMessage="<%$ Resources:Language, SelectSite%>" InputType="Token"
                        OnEntryAdded="radAutoCompleteBoxSelectionSite_EntryAdded" TextSettings-SelectionMode="Single" OnClientLoad="onLoadAutoComplete" MinimumPrefixLength="0" >


    And here is my script :

    <script type="text/javascript">
                function onLoadAutoComplete(sender, args) {
                    window.$telerik.$(sender.get_inputElement()).on('keypress', function (e) {
                        if (sender.get_entries().get_count() > 0) {



    I would like to stay in token mode and not in text mode. They still can delete the element with the keyboard but it's not enought clear. Is there any solution ?

    Hello Paul,

    You can use custom css style rules, in order to set a 100% width for the token so it could fit within the RadAutoCompleteBox. Hence, you will be able to show the delete button and achieve the needed behavior.

    In the attachment you can find a sample example, on how this could be achieved.

    Hope this would help.
