    Telerik Version: 2010.3.1110.1040
    Silverlight Version: 4
    Browser Version: IE 8
    Class: RadComboBox

    After a user has selected an item from the RadComboBox, the item text is highlighted. At this point, pressing the Backspace\Delete key does not remove the highlighted text.

    Note: A sample project is available if needed.

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or work-around.

    Hello Jared,

    Since the IsReadOnly property is set to True no characters different from the ones in the items of the ComboBox can be written or deleted. The Backspace is not working, because the ComboBox is ReadOnly - this is the behaviour by design when in read-only mode - nothing can be changed since is different from the items of the ComboBox. The standard WPF ComboBox works in exactly the same way, which was our objective when we developed the control.

    Best wishes,
