Hi Kendo Team:
What's the solution you give for kendo ComboBox with remote dataSources that return thousands of rows? Paging? Virtual Scrolling?
The demos only show comboBoxes with just a few records. Could you provide any sample, please?

Kind regards,
Oscar.

Hello Oscar,

The Kendo UI Combobox does not support paging or virtual scrolling. In general you can set the minLength property and turn on the server filtering, so you can reduce the client operations.

Using a Combobox to display thousands of options is not a good approach from UI standpoint, so I would also suggest you to reconsider the way you use the widget in your project.

Thank you Kiril for answering so quickily.
So what kendo control would you use to select an item that you don't know what it is? Imagine you have to enter a product item or a ZIP Code.

Hello Oscar,

You can take a look at the AutoComplete along with server filtering and reasonable minLength configuration. This way you will not load thousands of items in the DOM, which will speed up the application.
