Hi J,

Please try the following JavaScript to set focus on the RadComboBox on page load and the EmptyMessage wont get displayed. To know more about focusing the RadComboBox, please visit this documentation.

JavaScript:
<script type="text/javascript">
    function pageLoad() {
        var RadComboBox1 = $find('<%=RadComboBox1.ClientID %>');
        var input = RadComboBox1.get_inputDomElement().focus();
    }
</script>

Thanks,
Shinu

Hello,

This scenario is not supported, since the functionality of the EmptyMessage in the RadComboBox is that it should disappear, once the control is focused, regardless if the user is allowed to type in the input of the control or not.
