    We are currently developing an app for Silverlight 4 (there is no expectation of the Client updgrading to SL5 any time soon), and have the following separate requirements

    1. RadComboBoxes that accept input, autocomplete, tab index as peryour post



            <Setter Property="IsEditable" Value="True" />
            <Setter Property="IsReadOnly" Value="True" />
            <Setter Property="IsFilteringEnabled" Value="True" />
            <Setter Property="IsTabStop" Value="True" />
            <Setter Property="OpenDropDownOnFocus" Value="True" />
            <Setter Property="TextSearchMode" Value="Contains" />
            <Setter Property="CanAutocompleteSelectItems" Value="False" />

    This was working fine but no longer appears to be working post v.2011.2.712.1040

    2. Printing a Word document displayed in a RadRichTextBox

    This only appears available post RadControls_for_Silverlight4_2012_1_0215_DEV_hotfix


    I have tried the following SL4 DLL HotFixes:


    But the desired behaviour of the Combo Box seems lost - it does seem to be back for SL5 though as per you demos

    Can you help at all?

    4.0            Silverlight version
    Win7/XP        OS
    Any IE        exact browser version
    VB.NET        preferred programming language

    Let me answer this myself - we had a default style applied to all Textboxes that set IsEnabled to False. Up until RadControls_for_Silverlight4_2012_1_0215_DEV_hotfix the internal Textbox of the RadComboBox appears to have taken its IsEnabled value from that of the RadComboBox - this no longer appears to be the case.

    Removing the Setter IsEnabled = False from the default style of all Textboxes resolved my issue.
