In your Automatic Load On Demand demo page when user type text into combobox, only matching elements are listed AND letters that user typed are bolded on items. Is it possible to achieve that effect when not using Automatic Load On Demand but WCF load on demand?

I have more complex scenario with related combobox: I use second combo OnClientItemsRequesting event to add first combo's value to context and then WCF returns elements filtered by first combo value and typed text. It works great but it would be even better if I could apply bolding effect.

Hello Rychu,

You just need to set Filter property of the combobox  as demonstrated here.

Hello Rychu,

Please check the Automatic Load On Demand example again - Filter property is set in the code-behind in Page_Load event according to the checkboxes in the configuration panel:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        RadComboBox1.Filter = FilterStartsWith.Checked ? RadComboBoxFilter.StartsWith : RadComboBoxFilter.Contains;
        RadComboBox2.Filter = FilterStartsWith.Checked ? RadComboBoxFilter.StartsWith : RadComboBoxFilter.Contains;
    }

It will work in the same way in a combobox populated from WCF Web Service.

Sincerely yours,
