    Hi, Telerik team,
    I have a combobox which shows only 20 of matched items. when customer type on the textbox, KeyUp event fires, and the top 20 matched items will show on the list.
    The 21st item is customized as "more...", when chosen, the combobox will go fetching the next 20 matched items.
    Settings of the combobox:
     KeyUp="cmb_KeyUp" IsReadOnly="False" IsEditable="True"
                           IsFilteringEnabled="False" OpenDropDownOnFocus="True" IsTextSearchEnabled="False"    ItemsSource="{Binding}"

    everything goes smoothly except the combobox could not stay open if I chose "more...", I have to click open the combobox to see the next 20 matched items. 

    Is there anyway to make the combobox stays open? I tried IsDropDownOpen= true ,focus and other means, but none of  them work.

    Thanks in advance,
    Long Xue

    Hello Long,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Unfortunately, the ComboBox cannot stay open after one item is selected. That is the way how it is implemented.
    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    Is there a way to achieve this now in the latest version?

    Hello Akshaya,

    I am afraid that the intended behavior of RadComboBox is to close the dropdown when an item is selected and this wasn't changed in the latest release.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
