    Hi, You have a few samples on your site that purport to do load on demand, but from what I can tell, they do not provide what I need which is

    In radgrid edit mode, a combobox appears and when a few letters of text are typed, we ajax request names that are like the text that is typed at which point you can select one of the items.

    The demos I can find populate the combobox with a datatable, but there is no load on demand. The application I am working on provides access to over 10k of names, so loading all of them will result in horrible performance.

    If this can be achieved, please let me know.

    Hi Karl,

    You could try the approach from this code library even if you don't need the cascading functionality.
