<telerik:RadComboBox ID="ddlMyCombo" DataTextField="dev" DataValueField="devid" AllowCustomText="false"
                                                    runat="server" Filter="StartsWith" ExpandDirection="Down" />


user should not be able to type in custom text in the ComboBox. I set the allowcustomtext property to false but it did not work.
when user types in custom text and the form is saved, the combobox selected value is -1.

please help with a solution to this.

Hi Az,

With reference to this thread the MarkFirstMatch functionality does not mark the matches when the Filter functionality is enabled. Moreover, when the Filter functionality is enabled the users are allowed to type in the RadComboBox input area regardless the value set to the AllowCustomText property.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Princy.

scenario: the user enters invalid input/ enters keys that do not match any items from the comboBox.

Hi,
Setting AllowCustom text = false
and removing 
Filter= "startswith" solved the problem


Thanks.
