Hi,
This seems to do exactly what I want:
http://blogs.telerik.com/blogs/posts/10-04-09/how-to-filter-as-you-type-radgridview-inside-radcombobox-for-wpf-and-silverlight.aspx

However, I have 2 questions:
a)When i start typing in the combox, the grid does not show. How would I get it to show? I figured I would tie into the KeyPress event, and then set the .Visibility of the grid. But this leads me to the 2nd question:

b)How do you get access to the RadGridView from codebehind?

After 2 hrs, I've lost enough hair. I guess I just don't understand the Rad control model enough. I've tried various things, such as:

Any tips?

Thanks!

Hi Sammy,

Straight to your questions:

1. You can set OpenDropDownOnFocus property of the ComboBox to true, so the dropdown will be shown when the input field receives the focus.

2. Since the GridView is placed in a popup it cannot be directly accessed.  But you can still get the selected row from the ViewModel.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply.

Why do you say the gridview is placed in a popup? I'm not seeing that.

thanks!

Hello Sammy,

It is placed in the RadComboBox dropdown which is actually a popup.
