    I can't seem to find any working key events for RadDropDownList.DropDownListElement.AutoCompleteSuggest.

    What's currently happening:

    A user navigates to the desired auto complete suggestion and presses enter on it. They then have to press enter again(to trigger the RadDropDownList.KeyDown event).

    What I'd like to happen

    A user navigates to the desired auto complete suggestion and presses enter on it. I'm looking for what this event is.

     

    Thanks,

     

    Brandon

    I found the event I was looking for:

    RadDropDownList.DropDownListElement.AutoCompleteSuggest.DropDownList.KeyDown

    It doesn't trigger on up or down arrow keys but that doesn't matter for my use case.

    Hello, Brandon,  

    I am glad that the problem you were facing is now resolved. Note that depending on the applied AutoCompleteMode you have to access the respective drop down by the relevant autocomplete helper. Additional information about the autocomplete helpers is available in the following help article: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/dropdown-listcontrol-and-checkeddropdownlist/dropdownlist/features/auto-complete

    I hope this information helps. If you have any additional questions, please let me know. 

    Regards,
    Dess
