I've got a RAD ComboBox that is bound to a long list of lookup values. It uses load on demand and MarkFirstMatch.

When the user is typing some text and then quickly presses TAB to go to next control on the page, the RAD combo currently grabs back the focus after a few seconds if it finds a match. Can that be prevented? It would be much nicer if the combo automatically expanded the Text to the first match without grabbing the keyboard focus.

In the case that there is no single match, it should keep the text as entered by the user, and then on the form-submit, we could validate the selection in the combo and inform the user to (re-)select a value. In our application this will not be common because most of the values are short, and the users types them in quickly and fully.

Thanks for any help,
Ries
