    Question 1 - Does the user have any control on the text that is displayed in the Radcombobox while using keyboard navigation.




    ChangeTextOnKeyBoardNavigation = "true" or "false" just completely turns it on or off.

    Question 2 - Is there any property that will return the index or text of the currently focussed item? eg. if i am currently highlighting the 6th item in the combobox items with my keyboard. (Selected item does not return the item that i just highlight during keyboard navigation)

    If you need more information about what we are trying the achieve you can continue to read...

    We are using the Radcombobox to autosuggest employees. For better user experience, what we want to do is - If the user tyes something like - 'smith', in all the auto suggested values we want to 'bold' the text 'smith' eg-

    John Smith
    Jonathon Smithson
    Smith and others

    so what we do is while populating the list of values to autosuggest, we use the <b> tags to format the text.

    So baiscally we add

    John <b>Smith</b>
    <b>Smith</b> and others


    This works perfectly and we can see the search results with Smith highlighted.
    However, when we use the keyboard to navigate in this list of suggested values, the text  'John <b>Smith</b>' (with the html <b> tags) appear in the text box.

    Please advise.
