    when I'm writing in the dropdownlist the dropdown is automatically dropping down. That's great. But when I try to leave the dropdownlist by tabbing whilst the dropdown still is dropped down, the dropdown won't close...

    Am I missing something?

    Best regards

    What version of the controls are you using? 
    With Q2  2010 914 When you have a dropdownlist and type (selecting an item) and tab away, the menu closes.

      For the 2011 Q1 Latest Version, the DropDownWindow(in the RadDropDownList) is sometime will keep open even when I select some item.......(for example if I can press CTRL-S for save, so when I just input one char for the raddropdownlist, and its autocomplete function find me a suitable item..... but it cannot close immediately when I press CTRL-S......ant the result is the save process is complete but the dropdownlist window is still open ?!)

    Could you provide a good way to ensure it close automatically?

    Hi Frank Chou,

    Thank you for the writing.

    I tested the described scenario using our latest release - Q2 2011 SP1 and I could not observe an issue. Please could you send us a sample application and a detailed description on how to reproduce it. Just a suggestion, you could close manually the drop down popup by calling the CloseDropDown method when CTRL-S is pressed.

    I will be glad to help further and I am looking forward to your reply.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
