    I'm binding a country list data to radcombobox with multiple selection option. Its working fine, but if i want to search the items by typing the text. I'm facing some problem. 

     Say if i search for "India", i will type "indi" in textfield of a radcombobox it will show "india" so that i will check it.

    It is working as of the situation now, but if want to select one more country by typing the text like for "United states", 

    Now the issue is " I need to clear the existing text "indi" in the field by giving backspace" to search for a new one which is "united states", but  in combobox it remains checked. so there is no problem with the logic. But for a user will be like he is unchecking the existing country for selecting the new one.


    It would be better to have a separator for each selected item which is checked. 

     like this..

    If i type "indi" it will showup "india" then after i checked it, if i want to search a new one.

    i can do this way.. India, "countryname to search for" , so that i can search new items by giving the comma

    Thank you for the feedback. 

    In order to avoid confusion which items are checked the checked item is added to to the input field separated by comma from the previously checked items. When doing a new search the expected and standard behavior is to clear the input from any previously entered text, enter a new string and receive a result that matches the entered text.
