I have a list of items for a checkeddropdownlist, I don't want the user to be able to type in the dropdown.  I'd like for them to ONLY be able to uncheck/check items I've predefined.  

Essentially, I want what you do with the dropDownStyle property set to DropDownList for normal dropdownlist controls.

Hello, Troy,

Please refer to the below code snippet demonstrating how to handle the keyboard input in the editable part of RadCheckedDropDownList and disable typing:
        public RadForm1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();

            this.radCheckedDropDownList1.CheckedDropDownListElement.AutoCompleteEditableAreaElement.AutoCompleteTextBox.KeyPress += AutoCompleteTextBox_KeyPress;

        }

        private void AutoCompleteTextBox_KeyPress(object sender, KeyPressEventArgs e)
        {
            e.Handled = true;
        }

Thus, the users can use the drop down and check the desired items. I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.

This makes sense, I just thought there'd be a property that would do it instead.  Thank you.
