    You need to press Enter to commit the selection when the filtering is enabled. You cannot override this behavior.

    I had the exact problem, but couldn't find any solution on the forum.

    So, I implemented this feature myself using the keyDown Event =)

        public class PayeeComboBox : RadComboBox  
            public PayeeComboBox()  
                KeyDown += PayeeComboBox_KeyDown;  
            void PayeeComboBox_KeyDown(object sender, System.Windows.Input.KeyEventArgs e)  
                if (e.Key == System.Windows.Input.Key.Tab)  
                    foreach (var item in this.Items)  
                        var container = ItemContainerGenerator.ContainerFromItem(item);  
                        if (container != null && ((RadComboBoxItem)container).IsHighlighted)  
                            SelectedItem = ItemContainerGenerator.ItemFromContainer(container);  
                            this.Text = ((Payee)this.SelectedItem).AutocompleteName;  

    Hope this is helpful to you!
