    I am looking into this same thing.  I have tried all the different javascript stuff out there and none of it functions like I need it too.  Most will only select based on the first letter you type.

    I would like to see if telerik has an extender class for this or if I have to build one using open source control toolkit.

    Hello Joe,

    Currently we do not provide such extender class which could be used, the only build-in functionality for filtering of the RadListBox is demonstrated in the following demo here.

    I had the same issue, this is how I resolved it, it will scroll as you type.  Most people use the keypress value but that only gets the most recent keypress, use the getElemtnbyid for your search value and the following javascript.

      function filter_lstAvailableRIC(sender, e) {
            var list = $find("<%= lstAvailableRIC.ClientID %>");
            var searchText = document.getElementById('<%=txtSearchRic.ClientID%>').value;
            var items = list.get_items();
            for (var i = 0; i < items.get_count(); i++) {
                var item = items.getItem(i);
                var SelectPrgm;
                if (item.get_text().toLowerCase().startsWith(searchText.toLowerCase())) {

                    //SelectPrgm = $find("RadTextBox1")
                    SelectPrgm = $find("<%= txtSearchRic.ClientID %>");

                else {
