Hi, based on the provided information I am not sure I understand the problem you are experiencing. Could you please use this Dojo example to provide some further explanation about it?

Martin, 

thx a lot for the attention to my problem! 

So, if you comment Filter, then focus DDL, you will be able to select the value using the keyboard (just type latter T & Tofu will be selected)

if you have a filter (just uncomment),  & will try to do the same (selection the value using keyboard), nothing will be selected

Hi Aleksandr,

The described behavior is expected. If it is suitable for your scenario you could overwrite the _kewdown functionality of the DropDownList and open the widget when it is focused and a letter is typed. Thus the user can start typing in order to filter the data. Below is an example:

 kendo.ui.DropDownList.fn._keydown = function(e) {  
        
        var isFocused = $('#dropdownlist').data('kendoDropDownList').wrapper.hasClass('k-focus')
        if(e.keyCode >= 65 && e.keyCode <= 90 && isFocused){
          $("#dropdownlist").data('kendoDropDownList').open()
        }
        
};

Here is a Dojo where the above is demonstrated.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Neli

Hello Neli,

thx a lot for the provided solution, but it does not solve the problem, even if the DDL is opened & filtered (according to the typed input) I still can't select the value using the keyboard

P.S we just trying to let clients have the fastest & comfortable approach to entering the data, tab + keyboard selection seems the best one
