    The drowdownlists with (client & serverside) searchbox needs 2 keystrokes to start searching...

    So when I set the focus on a dropdown, for example with the tab.. I need one keystroke to open the dropdown and a second one to actually set the character in the searchbox en start searching.. 

    Is this a common problem in Kendo?

    (when I focus the dropdown with a click, the dropdown opens automatically, so then there is no problem)

    Hello Katja,

    In general, the DropDownList with enabled filtration will not search when the popup is closed. This is expected behavior.

    If you would like to allow typing right after the widget is focused, then you can open the popup on widget focus:
