I have the following RadComboBox bound to a list of US States

  <telerik:RadComboBox 
       ID="ddlPropertyState" 
       Runat="server" 
       Skin="Windows7"  
       Width="140px"
       AutoPostBack="true" 
       AllowCustomText="true"
       EmptyMessage="Choose..." 
       MarkFirstMatch="true" 
       EnableTextSelection ="true" 
       onselectedindexchanged="ddlPropertyState_SelectedIndexChanged1"
     >
     </telerik:RadComboBox>

The state names represent the full state names (i.e. New York).  When I type New, I get New Hampshire selected (due to alphabetical order), however hitting the space bar has no effect (i.e. I can't type New<space>York).  Is there a problem in my configuration that prevents me from doing that?

Thanks,
Nathan

Hi Nathan,

Please take a look at this demo. Try to write "Carlos". There are two people with that name. If you want to select "Carlos Hernández" instead of "Carlos González" - the space will not be marked, but as soon as you type "Carlos H" you'll get the right guy selected.

Please let me know if I get your question right or if you still need some help.

Best wishes,

I am experiencing this same problem.  In my DB, I have "The Spinners". 

When trying to add a new custom entry, with "Allow custom text" and "markfirstmatch" both enabled if I type "The " I can't create a new custom text of "The Soldiers" for example.  It will not allow it, but instead forces "The Spinners"

I also have "ShowDropDownOnTextBoxClick" set to False.

I tried setting the filter to "Contains" and "StartsWith" but that disrupts the autocomplete functionality when the ShowDropDownOnTextBoxClick is set to false.

While Telerik guys are fixing the bug, you can try using the following script to remedy the problem:

        function onKeyPressing(sender, eventArgs) {
            var e = eventArgs.get_domEvent();
            var keyCode = e.keyCode || e.which;
            var shouldMarkFirstMatch = (keyCode !== 32);

            sender.set_markFirstMatch(shouldMarkFirstMatch);
        }

The script will disable matching when you press the space key and enable it back when you press any other key.  In my quick testing, it seems to work fine.
