    I wanted to use "search as you type" functionality ( in a TreeListView, but looks like it doesn't work for it even though it's inherited from GridView.

    I tried it on a new blank project and confirmed my suspicion:

    <telerik:RadTreeListView ShowSearchPanel="True"/>

    doesn't show a search panel, but 

    <telerik:RadGridView ShowSearchPanel="True"/>

    works without any issues.

    Is this intended behaviour, or can we hope for a fix?

    Thank you.

    Hi Kiril,

    Currently, search-as-you-type functionality is supported only for RadGridView. And for the time being, it is not scheduled for implementation for RadTreeListView. Our main concern is that this feature can be applied only on the parent items since the children are not always available and the control knows basically only for the parent items. The same is the case with filtering. Thus, the behavior for searching would have seemed incomplete and not fully functional. 
    I do hope you understand our concern.

    Do you need help with upgrading your AJAX, WPF or WinForms project? Check the Telerik API Analyzer and share your thoughts.

    I am using GridView version 2017.1.222.45 and the Ctrl F function does not seem to work for me,

    I placed both to true

    Hi Dharma,

    What is the exact behavior that you observe? Generally, pressing the Ctrl+F would make the Search Panel visible in case it is hidden. If the panel is already visible - pressing the combination would move the focus to the TextBox so that you can start your search. Is this the behavior you observe? Otherwise, are you handling some key events at your end that might be overriding the logic?

    I have attached a sample for your reference. You can try to modify it in order to represent the behavior at your end.

    Have a great rest of the week.
