Hi,

I had the following code, that was working with Silverlight 4 and previous version of Telerik. We have now upgraded to Silverlight 5 and newest version of Telerik. RadComboBox TextInput event does not work anymore. Is there something to do to fix it?

<telerik:RadComboBox IsEditable="True" x:Name="radCombo" Width="80" Cursor="Hand" SelectionChanged="radCombo_SelectionChanged" TextInput="radCombo_TextInput">
  <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Content="6" />
  <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Content="7" />
  <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Content="8" />
  <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Content="9" />
</telerik:RadComboBox>

Hello Toni,

We were able to reproduce it and it the strange thing is that using the latest versions it works in Silverlight 4, but does not work in Silverlight 5. We have logged it our Public Issue Tracking System. We will research it further and you can monitor the progress of fixing it in the above PITS issue.

I just noticed this after upgrading as well.
This has not been fixed since April?
Any plans of getting this done sooner or later?

Thanks

Thanks, looking forward to it.

For the moment I have a workaround listening for the 'enter' key but I'll keep this open as a reminder if you don't mind.

Thanks.

Any update on this?

We would like the TextInput event as well. This is mostly because we need to handle text/keyboard entry and item selection based on user input. Normally we would use the built in feature of TextSearchMode, but this seems to fail to work if you use an item template and do not have DisplayMemberPath set (those conflict).

Thanks,
Patrick

Hello Patrick,

When we have debuged the issue we have found out that this is a framework change and the event is handled in Silverlight 5. In order to handle TextInput, you need to use AddHandler method and listen for the handled events too. For example:

this.combo.AddHandler(Control.TextInputEvent, new TextCompositionEventHandler(this.RadComboBox_TextInput), true);

Also, please note that you can use the filtering functionality without the DisplayMemberPath being set. So in order the filtering to know according to witch property to search and filter you need to set the
TextSearch.TextPath attached property to the RadComboBox :

<telerik:RadComboBox  telerik:TextSearch.TextPath="Name" ...

Hope this would help.
