    If you are using these new controls, be aware that there are subtle inconsistencies between them and the standard Windows Forms controls.
    If you rely on standard behaviour, your code may not work as expected.
    I expect telerik to fix that, so when you code to the controls as they are now, expect having to change that back again with upcoming releases.

    Bugs I found (and reported) so far:
    - FindStringExact throws an Exception if Item.Count is 0
    - Adding an Item to the DropDown List clears the TextBox
