    Hello Telerik Team,

    I am using RadCombobox.

    Condition 1:
    Data Binding - by using RIA Domain Data source in xaml. My table has a huge list of items. My requirement is to have the user go down the list first and have to take advantage of the loadsize and autoload of domain data source.

    It should actually list only 15 items as load size say and when the user scrolls down, it show  add the next 15 items to the list.

    Conditon 2:
     Auto-COmplete of Rad Combo box should be smart enough to know what is entered in the combobox and automatically load the items matching the text and display it in the dropdown.

    It is analogous to using filter descriptors of domain data source but I am not sure of how to implement the auto-loading with the load size ?

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Hello Rakesh,

    With the up-coming Q3 Beta release we will introduce a new VirtualQueryableCollectionView, that will allow to accomplish easily your task. Unfortunately, the RadComboBox is not designed to be so "smart", but integrating it with this collectionview, it will make it happen.

    Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    I'm looking for the exact same functionality as Rakesh, but for .net MVC combobox.
    Can it be achieved?

    Sorry for posting this .net question at silverlight forum.

    Thank you in advance

    For my questions
    1. Well Domain data source can be used similar to any other WCF RIA Data services  but unfortunately Loadsize can't be controlled which is certainly disadvantageous in particular for  a huge list of items

    2. You may want to look at AutoComplete and AutoSelect features of Rad Combobox manual to implement it

    I have answered to my best of knowledge

    Good luck Andrea,
