    I have 3 combo boxes on web form.  all 3 use the same list.  the list can have as many as 1000 list items.  is there a way to configure the 3 combo boxes to share the same list?  otherwise, the list is created 3 times in the html page and it bloats the size of the web page.  thanks in advance.

    Yes, i know i can setup combo for autocomplete on server. but my user's don't like the change in behavior (they like  to see all names appear when clicking the drop down).

    Hi B,

    I am afraid that the behaviour that you describe is not officially supported.

    You can try to populate the three RadComboBox controls using the same DataTable (for example), but I doubt that this will help you achieve a better performance.

    In general loading a great amount of items in RadComboBox is a challenging task and the best way to improve performance in such scenarios is to use Load On Demand.
