    I have placed my radGrid inside a Radcombobox but I try to open a radcombobox by calling OnClientDropDownOpening="OnClientDropDownOpening" using ajax request it gets closed automatically.

     function OnClientDropDownOpening(sender, args) {
                var comboText = sender.get_text();
                if (comboText.length > 2) {
                     $find("<%= rapJob.ClientID %>").ajaxRequest("LoadFilteredData," + comboText);
                else {

     Protected Sub rapJob_AjaxRequest(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As AjaxRequestEventArgs)

            Dim rgJob As RadGrid = TryCast(rcbJob.Items(0).FindControl("rgJob"), RadGrid)
            If e.Argument.IndexOf("LoadFilteredData") <> -1 Then
            End If

        End Sub

        Protected Sub rgJob_NeedDataSource(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As Telerik.Web.UI.GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs)

            Dim rgJob As Telerik.Web.UI.RadGrid = source

            Dim IJobs = (From Jobs In dbContext.FF_Jobs Where Jobs.IsCreated = True And Jobs.IsCancelled = False And Jobs.IsTemplate = False
                        Select Jobs).ToList

            rgJob.DataSource = IJobs

        End Sub

    <telerik:RadAjaxPanel ID="rapJob" RequestQueueSize="5" runat="server" Width="100%"
                   OnAjaxRequest="rapJob_AjaxRequest" EnableOutsideScripts="True" HorizontalAlign="NotSet"
                   ScrollBars="None" LoadingPanelID="alpJob">
                   <telerik:RadComboBox ID="rcbJob" EmptyMessage="- please select job -" runat="server"

                       Skin="Vista" AutoPostBack="True" AutoCompleteSeparator="true" Filter="Contains"
                               <telerik:RadGrid ID="rgJob" runat="server" Width="95%" Skin="Vista" AutoGenerateColumns="False"

                                   <PagerStyle Mode="NumericPages"></PagerStyle>
                                   <MasterTableView Width="100%" DataKeyNames="ID,JobName" Name="rgJob" CommandItemDisplay="None" NoMasterRecordsText=""   >
                                           <telerik:GridBoundColumn SortExpression="ID" HeaderText="ID" HeaderButtonType="TextButton"
                                               DataField="ID" UniqueName="ID" ReadOnly="true">
                                           <telerik:GridBoundColumn SortExpression="JobName" HeaderText="Job Name" HeaderButtonType="TextButton"

                                   <ClientSettings EnableRowHoverStyle="true">
                                       <Selecting AllowRowSelect="true" />

    This behavior of RadComboBox is normal since whenever you try to open the drop-down list the event is either terminated or there is a trip to the server after which the RadComboBox renderer with its drop-down closed.

    If you want to learn more about the client API of the control, refer to the following documentation:  http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/combobox-client-side-basics.html.

    All the best,
