    Hi.  We're running the 2011.1.11.419 version of this control in our product.  Our users have pointed out that the keyboard delat that allows you to jump to longer selections has gotten much smaller.  So if you have a dropdown with "Bart", "Bob", and "Olaf", you have to type "bo" very quickly to get to Bob, otherwise your selection ends up on "Olaf".  I hope this makes sense... I have no idea what you correctly call this feature.

    I tried this on the Winforms RadControls demo app, and I had exactly the same result.  The maximum delay you can have between typing the "B" and the "o" seems to be 500ms or less, when I'm sure it used to be 1000ms or more.

    For our users this is quite a nuisance, since most of them type with two fingers but need to move quickly through dropdowns with hundreds of options.  (On the upside... they're learning to type faster :)

    Please let me know if you think this is an issue that has appeared in version 2011 / 419 or not.  Thanks.

    Hello Patrick,

    Thank you for writing.

    You should manipulate KeyboardSearchResetInterval property in order to increase the time between key presses, for example:

    this.radListControl1.KeyboardSearchResetInterval = 1000;//1 second

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
