    i have following xaml for my combobox:
    <telerik:RadComboBox HorizontalAlignment="Left" DockPanel.Dock="Top" Margin="5,0,5,0" TabIndex="1" FontSize="14"  Name="RadComboBoxLocality"
                                                 VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="286" Height="25"  IsEditable="True"
                                                 ItemTemplate="{StaticResource CustomItemTemplateLocality}"   CanKeyboardNavigationSelectItems="False"
                                                 MaxDropDownHeight="400" StaysOpenOnEdit="True" OpenDropDownOnFocus="True" IsDropDownOpen="True"
                                                 ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource SuggestorViewModel}, Path=Searchresult}"
                                                 SelectedValue="{Binding Source={StaticResource SuggestorViewModel}, Path=CurrentItem, Mode=TwoWay}"
                                                 Text="{Binding Source={StaticResource SuggestorViewModel}, Path=LocalityName, Mode= TwoWay}"
                                                 IsSynchronizedWithCurrentItem="True" IsFilteringEnabled="False">

    Selecting a item from list works with Enter-Key without problems. But when I move through the list an press tab nothing will be selected and the dropdown just closes. Any ideas?

    Hi Neils,

    This is the way RadComboBox is working by default. You have to press enter in order to select item and pressing Tab key just moves the focus to the next item without selecting the highlighted item. You can use the properties CanKeyboardNavigationSelectItems and CanAutocompleteSelectItems and set them to true. This way when you move between items with the keyboard they will be selected. Hope this works for you.
