I have replied you in your support ticket and here is the text of the reply:
has been designed to behave much like the standard MS ComboBox and the auto-complete behavior is disabled when DropDownStyle
is set to DropDownList
. Instead, there is in effect a specific for DropDownList
auto-complete behavior, which however has no visual presentation (i.e. when the user types, the typed text does not appear in the textbox). We intend to implement the full set of autocomplete settings for DropDownList
mode in the near future. Meanwhile there are different workarounds, which have already been discussed here: http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/thread/b311D-bbchhc.aspx
If you have any additional questions, please write us again.
