    I have a RadComboBox which has an extra "Select All"-type item to select a sub set of all items. When this item is checked and the combobox is closed, I would like for the counter to ignore it when displaying how many items are checked.

    e.g. The combobox contains "Select all", "Select all fruits", "apple", "banana", "monkey"

    If I check "banana" and "monkey", it displays "2 items checked".

    If I check "select all fruits", "apple" and "banana" will be checked but since "select all fruits" is also an item, it will display "3 items checked"


    I haven't been able to find a way to have the combobox ignore one of the listitems or to change the count of selected items. Is this possible?

    Hello Sebastian,

    You can achieve this requirement using the following approach:
    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server" EmptyMessage="Select options"
        CheckBoxes="true" EnableCheckAllItemsCheckBox="true" Width="200px"
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Select all fruits" Value="Fruits" BackColor="SkyBlue" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Apple" Value="Apple" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Banana" Value="Banana" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Lemon" Value="Peach" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Select all vegetables" Value="Vegetables" BackColor="SkyBlue" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Onion" Value="Onion" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Potato" Value="Potato" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Select all animals" Value="Animals" BackColor="SkyBlue" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Monkey" Value="Monkey" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Cat" Value="Cat" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Dog" Value="Dog" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Bird" Value="Bird" />
    function itemChecked(sender, args) {
        if (sender.get_text().indexOf("items checked") > 0) {
            sender.set_text("Multiple items checked");

    I hope this will prove helpful.
