    I would like to suggest a new RadControl to add to your lib : an item picker with search capabilities...
    I have done one as a usercontrol using the ajaxcontroltoolkit, but I think this can be converted to a RadControl...

    I explain using a example : a city picker (country, zip code and name)

    The control in a readonly mode (like in FormView with CurrentMode=Select) :
    If one item is selected, item data is shown (Ex : FR 69000 LYON)
    If no item is selected, a custom text is shown (Ex : No city selected)

    In read/write mode, the behavior is the same as readonly mode, but there are 2 buttons : Delete and Search.
    Delete remove current item selection, and Search opens a modal popup (modalpopupextender) to help users search the item.
    The search form contains searchable fields that user can fill (country as dropdown, zip code and name as text), a search button, a cancel button, and a result grid.
    The grid contains a "Select" command button, that let the user select the desired item.

    All is ajaxified to avoid page postbacks.

    I think it is possible to create a rad control to avoid me copy/past the design behavior for each item I need to pick up like this (city, users...)
