    I have been trying to accomplish essentially what the "Related ComboBox" demo does (http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/combobox/examples/functionality/multiplecomboboxes/defaultcs.aspx) but with a slight twist.  I want to be able to use the filter.  This seems to break the demo and I'm trying to figure out how to "fix" it.  Also, when not using the filter (and purely using the keyboard for navigation) you can arrow down and use the tab key to select the highlighted item and advance to the next ComboBox.  This also does not work properly with the filter.


    To reproduce, I took the demo code and simply added Filter="Contains" and AllowCustomText="False" to all 3 of the RadComboBoxes.

    Could someone point me in the right direction to making this work right?

    Thanks!

    Hi Mark,

    The Filter feature of RadComboBox is not intended to work with related RadComboBoxes scenario. Could you explain a bit more what exactly you are trying to achieve so that we would be able to suggest you an appropriate solution for it?

    All the best,

    I am creating a timesheet entry system, but there can be many items in the first combo box.  So the ability to filter is essential as you can type in a partial name of a job and select it.  Once that is done there are dependent drop downs which populate based on the job that was chosen from the first combo box.  If it were possible to simply turn on the filtering on this demo and have it operate properly, it would be the perfect solution.

    Hi Mark,

    The attached sample project contains a scenario where the first RadComboBox is bound to declarative data source without using the load-on-demand feature. It does have the Filter feature enabled, however.

    You could test this scenario locally and see whether it fits your needs.

    I hope it is helpful.

    That is part of the way there.  I need for the second and third combo boxes to be filterable as well for quicker locating of the item desired.  Also, ideally I would want the users to be able to use the tab key to select the item once the one they want is highlighted by the filter.
