    I want to have a RadComboBox where I have


    When I start typing I want the drop down to show IF there are items that contains what is currently being typed.

    I also want this combo box to utilise auto completion.

    What is the best way to achieve this.

    Hello Jason,

    When IsFilteringEnabled property of RadComboBox is set to True the auto completion ability of RadComboBox is not available - thus no auto completion could be provided while that property is set to True.

    However, what you could also consider is using RadAutoCompleteBox instead of RadComboBox - it provides many helpful features such as creating custom filtering behavior. Please, check the Silverlight online demos (they are identical with the ones for WPF) and SDK examples of the control.

    We hope this will help you.
