    I have a page with several RadComboBoxes.

    Each combobox filters on the text that is typed (for instance, I type "er", eric, frederic, meredith appear in the dropdown).

    That poses a usability problem when a user wants to select another item in the list, the other items are not visible when some text is typed in the combobox. Each time, the user has to manually select the filter text and delete it. Is there a clean (preferably built-in) way of clearing the text in a RadComboBox ? (a "clear selection" option in the dropdown, a "X" button on the selecteditemtemplate field ?

    Thank you,

    Hi Eric Routhier,

    The idea of the filtering feature is to hide any Item not matching the filter criteria. You can add an image button next to the RadComboBox, which clears the text on click. This is just one possible way to implement your requirement having in mind the Filter's behavior.
