Hello,

 

I am refering to this documentation http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/wpf/api/html/P_Telerik_Windows_Controls_RadComboBox_TextInputString.htm

 

I want to get the InputString. I have updated the dll to version 2016.3.914 but still I could not find the property in XAML.

Could someone tell me what have I done wrong?

Hi Sherry,

The TextInputString is a property that is used only when the ComboBox is NonEditable or is ReadOnly as it is stated in our API reference. If you want to get the entered by the user text inside NonEditable or ReadOnly RadComboBox the only other approach is to handle the TextInput event of RadComboBox and build the needed input text inside it - notice that RadComboBox has a timer that clears the InputString in a specific time and you might need to implement that as well inside the TextInput event.

Please, check the attached sample that demonstrates how to achieve the described above approach.

Hope this helps.
