    Is there a way to show the drop down when focusing on the RadSearchBox?  I would want it to behave in the same way as the ShowDropDownOnTextboxClick property of the RadComboBox. 

    The reason for this is that I have information in the header and footer I would like to display as soon as the user focuses on the box.

    Hello Eli,

    I am afraid, such functionality is not supported by the RadSearchBox. The control relies on the user typing text (at least one character) in order to open the dropdown and return results based on the text entered. There are no client-side methods that would allow the dropdown to be opened on focus.
