    We are using RadCombobox autocomplete feature. When user is typing below text which having special characters then server side we are seeing different text
    @ Pole                -- server side -- %40 Pole
    ran & marry         -- server side  -- ran %20 marry
    s/s/                      -- server side  -- s%2Fs%2F
    Sun Rao              -- server side   -- Sun%20Rao

    This is not happening consistently, but in debug mode we can see different values. It would great help if there a way to fix this.

    Hi pradip,

    Unfortunately I couldn't replicate the issue at my end. Please have a look into the sample code snippet which works fine at my end.

    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"
        DataTextField="Text" Filter="StartsWith" AllowCustomText="true">
    <telerik:RadButton ID="RadButton1" runat="server" Text="GetData" OnClick="RadButton1_Click">

    protected void RadButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        string text = RadComboBox1.Text;

    Please provide you code if it doesn't help.
