Is it possible to get the combobox to filter on server, instead of client?

Hello there,

You can filter the combobox on the server using its Load On Demand mechanism.

Hi,
but that doesn't rebind the combobox again? It atleast does not call execute select in the datasource.

The Load on Demand mechanism isn't a serverside filtering.

Server side filtering would be the exact same feature as the client side filtering (with the same very nice display) but automatically using ajax requests to get from the server a few items to display in the drop down as the user is typing on the keyboard. This is exactely what we can see now on the Google search engine.

Telerik guys: could you please tell us if sutch a (wonderfull!) feature is planned in the near future ? It would simply be a killer !!

Hi Francois MARTIN,

Yes, automatic filtering is in our plans but we haven't decided when to implement it yet. It will not be ready for the Q1 2009 release for sure.
