    Is there any possibility for me to get the currently highlighted item in a combo box? Not selected but highlighted. I need this because a user wants to select an item with a tab and move the focus to the next element in a grid. Or maybe you have a better solution? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Hi Walter,

    In order to achieve the desired functionality you could set the CanKeyboardNavigationSelectItems of RadComboBox to True. Thus when you move between the items with the keyboard - pressing the Up, Down and Tab keys - the items will be selected.

    Please, give a try to that approach and let us know if it worked for you.

    Hopes this helps.
