Hi,

I have a few questions. Here is what I need to do, please let me know what can be done to achieve that

1. I need to display 5 columns (using template)
2. I need to be able to search in 3 columns (with Filter="Contains")
3. I need to be able to load it on demand, enable load on demand does not work if I bind it during page load, I think I need to do that using ItemsRequested event.. am I correct?
4. I need to load data from webservice but display in template (5 columns), when using webservice, I see in the example taht we can assign item.Text and Item.Value properties, wat about the data for other 4 columns (if its not possible, this can be suggestion for next release)
5. If I place a raddock inside updatepanel, I get an error saying an object with that ID already exists. I understand that if I move the raddock, it is moving out of the updatepanel, do you guys have a fix for this?

Please let me know. I seem to be loving all the controls you got. btw, I'm developing an Enterprise app. Do you have any suggestion as to best practises using telerik controls for enterprise apps?

Hi Sathish,

Straight to your questions:

1. Here is an example of a multi-column RadComboBox.
2. "Filter" is a client-side filtering which searches the items only by Text properties of the items.
3-4. Load on demand with web service doesn't support templates, we've already logged this for future implementation. For now I suggest you use  ItemsRequested event to load items and filter them as in this online example

Best wishes,
