Hello all,

I have the following RadComboBox skin

<telerik:RadComboBox  
     EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" 
     EnableLoadOnDemand="False"       
     AllowCustomText="False" 
     HighlightTemplatedItems="True"  
     SkinID="CBSelection"      
     ShowMoreResultsBox = "False" 
     Skin = "Black" 
     Filter="Contains" 
     ShowDropDownOnTextboxClick="true" 
     MarkFirstMatch="False" 
     EnableTextSelection = "True" 
     Height="150px" 
     runat="server" > 
 </telerik:RadComboBox> 

Problem is that if I start typing something and hit enter then SelectedValue is always empty forcing me to click on the desired item every time. I would like to know if there is a way to make the SelectedValue to hold the first item's value from the filtered list when hitting Enter.

Thanks,

Martín

Hello Macmariman,

I suggest you enable the MarkFirstMatch property.

Thanks Rosi, it solves the SelectedValue issue but the combo starts behaving as if it was using the "StartsWith" filter instead of "Contains". Strange thing, if backspace is hit then it will show all the correct items until another letter is entered.
Is this a bug?

Thanks,

Martín

Hi macmariman,

Indeed this is the current behavior and it is more likely to be a bug.

We will investigate it further and will search for a resolution.

I will follow up in this forum thread as we have results.

Thank you for letting us know about the issue.

Sincerely yours,
Simon

Hi macmariman,

I am writing regarding the issue with MarkFirstMatch set to true and enabled Filter.

Please use the latest hotfix build of Telerik.Web.UI where the issue is resolved - the first Item from the filtered Items list will be highlighted (and not selected).

Your Telerik points have been updated for bringing our attention to the matter.

Best wishes,
Simon

Hello,

I'm interesting by this solution and I downloaded the new hotfix dll, but when I use it I see the "purchase" messages. I have a subscription for using telerik controls, What must I do to resolve this problem ?

Regards.

Hi Jean-Christophe Godinaud,

Please open a support ticket and we would send you a dev version of this hotfix which does not show any trial messages.
