RequireFieldValidator not validating the EmptyMessage of RadComboBox
If the same text is typed into the input field as the one set for EmptyMessage and page is submitted, validator evaluates True.

Current workaround is to subscribe the RadComboBox to OnClientFocus client event handler, and clear the EmptyMessage manually, thus preventing the EmptyMessage text to be sent to server.

<telerik:RadComboBox ... OnClientFocus="comboFocus">

<script type="text/javascript">
	function comboFocus(sender, args) {

Hey Attila,

This has been an approved bug for almost 3 months!  Why isn't it fixed or scheduled to be fixed yet!!!  We pay a lot for the Telerik license and expect known bugs to be fixed in a timely manner!

Please advise.

When a validator validates as TRUE when it is FALSE, there can be serious consequences - logical and financial.  Since comboboxes are so prevalent in web applications (in the 100's), coding and testing the workaround (and then removing it) can take a couple of days.  Please schedule this fix ASAP!
