    Hi,

    Congratulations on the great control your have for silverlight.

    Now, what I want to achieve is the following:
    - display a list of items in a combobox like style, but with multiple columns (I know about the dropdownbutton approach)
    - be able to filter them, the filter should work by multiple columns

    Were do you think is the best point to start ?

    Thank you,
    Calin

    Hello Calin,

    Since RadComboBox cannot manipulate the GridView items, it is not the best option for your scenario. The following example demonstrates how to create a custom filter for RadGridView:
    http://demos.telerik.com/Silverlight/#GridView/Search

    It is a good start, you only need to find a way to put the GridView into a Popup. The DropDownButton looks like a good candidate, but it does not have a TextBox to type, so you might need to edit its template to add a TextBox and then connect that TextBox to the GridView in the DropDownContent.

    Sincerely yours,
