    Hi,

    What is the best approach to implement autosuggest/loadondemand combobox inside radgrid. Most examples, including PDF self-peaced file are obsolete and they use external ascx file.
    Can you please provide step-by-step instruction how to get combobox inside radgrid during insert/update operation. I would like to have combo which starts to retrieve matching records from database after entering 4-th letter, not earlier to eliminate additional traffic.

    Best Regards,

    Darek

    Hi Dariusz ,

    I suggest you take a look our online example Load-on-demand Grid in Combobox.

    It is implemented in both  C# and VB and all needed code is in the VB and ASPX file.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply. I know how to populate combobox when it's stand alone. I rather thought about example or snippet of code covering:

    1. Where to put combobox in the RadGrid area so that it is shown during insert/edit a record
    2. How to reffer to this combo in code to fill in it with items (in what event function)

    Best Regards
