    I noticed that the RadTextBox does not have a Character Casing option of Proper Casing, which is basically capitalizing the first letter of each word. It would be nice if the RadTextBox control had this property.

    Hello Don,

    Thank you for writing.

    Your proposal seems quite interesting and for this reason I will add it in our Public Issue Tracking System, where users can vote for it. Feel free to add your vote here: 

    Meanwhile, you can achieve this behavior by using the following code: 
    TextInfo textInfo = new CultureInfo("en-US", false).TextInfo;
    bool updating = false;
    void radTextBox1_TextChanging(object sender, TextChangingEventArgs e)
        if (!updating)
            int pos = radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.TextBoxItem.SelectionStart;
            updating = true;
            radTextBox1.Text = textInfo.ToTitleCase(radTextBox1.Text);
            radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.TextBoxItem.SelectionStart = pos;
            updating = false;

    Your Telerik Points have been updated for this request.

    I hope that you find my answer helpful.
    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    This is an old post, but was this ever implemented?  The links to voting don't seem to be working.
