While outsourcing for a company (who has licenses for Telerik's Ajax components) I did some research on RadComboBox and some enhancement of its functionality to support Paging, Multi-select (using checkboxes & mouse dragging), limit list by "show selected only", "select all", item templates on Web Service calls, Sorting, etc.

Now that my term is now due with them, given that some of the work I did was "hacks" into the client-side javascript code and I'm concerned that newer versions will override my work (causing the customer to have to do some more "hacking"), I was wondering whether it was possible to share some of this work with Telerik so that some of the features will (hopefully) be part of the upcoming versions of the components.

See ComboBox1 Image for RadComboBox with Multi-select with dragging of mouse, paging.
See ComboBox2 Image for same RadComboBox with multiple items selected, showing in Tooltip the items that were selected.
See ComboBox3 Image for same RadComboBox, all items selected, with Hay skin.

All of the above use Web Service with Item Templates.

Hello Yaron,

You can open a support ticket and send us the source code. However I cannot guarantee when this feature is going to be incorporated in RadComboBox. One of the reasons is that ASP.NET Ajax 4 is still not officially released and we still cannot make RadComboBox dependent on it. Anyway we will review your code and plan accordingly.

Dear Antas,

While the item templating is a feature of this combobox, it's definately not the main one (in my opinion).
Additionally, I don't use Ajax 4 for templating (for the reason you specified below). Instead I built my own templating (based on Ajax4-like-syntax so it can be later incorporated in the future).

I'll send a DLL with some examples. Note that most of the features are implemented well for IE (customer's request) but need additional minor work for FireFox.
