    I'm having an issue with using a few telerik comboxes. I have them setup like this:
    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="ddlM" runat="server" Skin="Forest" Width="220px" ExpandDelay="10"
        AllowCustomText="true" MarkFirstMatch="true" OnClientSelectedIndexChanged="lookupValue"
        TabIndex="3" />

    along with asp required field validators setup like this:
    <asp:RequiredFieldValidator runat="server" ID="RequiredFieldValidator2" ControlToValidate="ddlM"
        Display="Dynamic" InitialValue="" Type="String" ValidationGroup="g1" ErrorMessage="required."
        Text=" X" />
    <asp:RequiredFieldValidator runat="server" ID="CompareValidator2" ControlToValidate="ddlM"
        Display="Dynamic" InitialValue="Select" Type="String" ValidationGroup="g1" ErrorMessage="required."
        Text=" X" />

    the problem i am having (and this problem is ONLY happening in IE9, not IE7 or IE8), is that when i enter custom values in the aforementioned combo box(s), the required field validators fire prompting me that input is required. If I choose something from the combox's list, its fine. I thought the validators validated the text property. It would appear that in IE9 this is not the case. Is there any guidance out there on this?

    I guess nevermind replying. I downloaded the latest trial version and it fixed the problem so I suppose that would have been my answer :)
