Kind of a nitpicky issue but when the text in a combo box is longer than the box itself, the end of the text is shown.  I am being asked to display the beginning of the text.

For example if the text is  "abcdef" and the combobox is wide enough to display only 3 characters, currently it will show "def", but we want it to show "abc".

I dont know if this matters but the combobox is in a gridview column. Here is the code for it:

 <telerik:GridViewDataColumn Header="Client" Width="160" SortMemberPath="ClientNum" DataMemberBinding="{Binding LearnClient}" TextAlignment="Left"
                                                 >
                        <telerik:GridViewDataColumn.CellStyle>
                            <Style TargetType="telerik:GridViewCell">
                                <Setter Property="Template">
                                    <Setter.Value>
                                        <ControlTemplate TargetType="telerik:GridViewCell">
                                            <telerik:RadComboBox x:Name="radClientCombo" IsFilteringEnabled="True"   GotFocus="RadClientBox_GotFocus" Height="20" VerticalAlignment="Top"
                                                                 CanKeyboardNavigationSelectItems="True" Text="{Binding LearnClient}" IsEditable="True" />
                                        </ControlTemplate>
                                    </Setter.Value>
                                </Setter>
                            </Style>
                        </telerik:GridViewDataColumn.CellStyle>
                    </telerik:GridViewDataColumn>

Hello Kjell,

The text is scrolled to the right because when you focus RadComboBox it selects all of its text. To prevent the selection you could set the SelectAllTextEvent property to None:

<telerik:RadComboBox SelectAllTextEvent="None" ... />
