 <telerikInput:RadComboBox x:Name="usersList" 
                           Height="23" 
                           Margin="0,0,0,10" 
                           ItemsSource="{Binding Path=UsersList, Mode=TwoWay}" 
                           SelectedItem="{Binding Path=SelectedUserId, Mode=TwoWay}" 
                           DisplayMemberPath="Value" 
                           IsEditable="True" 
                           IsReadOnly="True" 
                           CanKeyboardNavigationSelectItems="True" 
                           MinWidth="220" 
                           OpenDropDownOnFocus="True" />

The combobox data has items like

Simpson, Homer (HSimpson)
Simpson, Bart (BSimpson)
Simpson, Lisa (LSimpson)

I cannot type ", Bart" and have "Simpson, Bart (BSimpson)" selected. Anything after "n" does not work.

Any ideas?

I cannot set IsReadOnly="False" That will allow me to enter data that may not be in the combobox

TIA

Hello zaphod94,

You could set TextSearchMode=Contains to achieve the desired effect. The following online example could be used to easily poke around the control properties:

Valeri,
Thanks for the response. The suggestion works if I set IsReadonly="false" but I dont want to set IsReadOnly="fakse"

If IsReadonly="True" then even if TextSearchMode is set, the autocomplete chokes.

Any ideas?

TIA
