Good day to all 

I have the following code: 

telerik:RadSearchBox ID="RadSearchBox1" runat="server" Width="250px" Skin="MetroTouch" DataSourceID="OpenAccessLinqDataSource1" CssClass="" DataTextField="user_firmaname"
    DataValueField="user_id" Culture="de-DE" onsearch="RadSearchBox1_Search" ShowSearchButton="False">
 <DropDownSettings Height="400" Width="670" >
    <HeaderTemplate>
                    <ul>
                        <li class="col1">Firma</li>
                        <li class="col2">Ort</li>
                       
                    </ul>
                </HeaderTemplate>
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <ul>
                        <li class="col1">
                            <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "user_firmaname") %></li>
                        <li class="col2">
                            <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "user_ort") %></li>
                     
                    </ul>
                </ItemTemplate>
                  </DropDownSettings>
</telerik:RadSearchBox>


protected void RadSearchBox1_Search(object sender, SearchBoxEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.Text  != null)
            {
                string firmenname = e.Text;
                firmenname = firmenname.Replace("+", "und");
                Response.Redirect("/firmen/" + e.Value + "/" + firmenname);
            }
            else
            {
                RadSearchBox1.EmptyMessage = "keine Firma gefunden";
            }
        }

The problem is that if the client does not pick from the dropdown but simply hits enter e.value of course is not what I am looking for.

So I need a way to disable enter and have the client force to pick from dropdown.

You can try it here: http://zuol.ch.mserver4.arvixevps.com/firmen/ left side

Hi Markus,

 
This is a known issue in RadSearchBox that is currently not returning any value because it is not known which one to return when there a re many items in the drop-down. Currently we are researching the scenario and  from the upcoming service pack we plan to add a property that will give you the chance to select the first item from the drop-down on a click of the search button.

Hope this information will be helpful.

Regards,

Hello,

You can set the HighlightFirstMatch property to true that is available in the control in the latest versions of the controls.
