    I have a radcombobox with EnableAutomaticLoadOnDemand="true", when I select the combobox, all the data loads and I am able to select an item.  If I then click the same combobox, the value of the previous selection is present, therefore it will not load in any of the data untill i delete the text in the combobox.  Is there away around this?  I would like to the text to be cleared out so everytime a user clicks on the box it will load all the values in?

    I have set up the radcombobox in the folloaing way
    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="rcb_1" AllowCustomText="true" runat="server" EmptyMessage="Please select a value..." 
    DataTextField="description" DataValueField="ID" CssClass="radComboBox" AutoPostBack="true" MaxHeight="200px" width="170px"
    EnableAutomaticLoadOnDemand="true" Filter="Contains" ></telerik:RadComboBox>
    I bind the data in the following way,
    rcb_1.DataSource = Class.getData()
    Any help would be much appreciated

    Hi Russell Mabin,

    The reason for this behavior is the Filter property. In order to work-around it, please subscribe to OnClientDropDownOpening event of the combobox and add the following javascript function to your page:

    function dropDownOpening(sender, args) {
        if (sender.get_text() != "") {
            sender._filterText = "";

    please try it and let us know how it goes.
