Unexpected selection bug

(copy of Selection bug MultiColumnComboBox in UI for ASP.NET AJAX | Telerik Forums)


1. Go to Telerik Web UI MultiColumnComboBox WebForms MultiColumnComboBox Overview Demo | Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX

2. Enter "ha" select some records

3. Hover mouse over any of dropdown records

4. Click out of the dropdown to close it

5. Textbox keeps "ha" but the message below reads that You have selected Thomas Hardy whose ID is AROUT. They are a Sales Representative at Around the Horn however, nothing has been selected.

Is it expected ?
If it's a bug and having a long cycle to fixing bugs could you recommend any workaround?

Also, please look into changing mouse pointer when hovering over the text in dropdown columns - now it's "text" but should be "default"

Hi Vasko,

Thanks for update. I checked Kendo UI for jQuery MultiColumnComboBox  demo but it's hard to confirm the correct behavior since this demo doesn't show the selected item info. Also, in this demo I couldn't find any employee with order history.

Since you were able to reproduce I trust you to fix/verify the issue,

Thanks for help!

Hi Wayne,

Thank you for the screenshot and details on how to reproduce it. Indeed, you're right about this strange behavior of the MultiColumnComboBox and it was verified to be a bug. Your private post was converted to a public bug report, to share the problem with the community.

The bug seems to be resolved in the recent versions of the Kendo MultiColumnCombobox widget. Could you check its live demo at Kendo UI for jQuery MultiColumnComboBox and see if you experience the same behavior there too? If the issue is not reproducible we will fix it similarly in the MultiColumnCombobox AJAX wrapper too.

Kind regards,
Progress Telerik
