Why don't you include a boolean property to show selected image inside input ?

This is already a code library to do it :

"Loading..." text in Combobox with Virtual Scrolling is visible on first set of items loading.
It shows first time "Loading..." text. on scrolling it loads items from PageMethods/WebService but "Loading..." text it not visible i.e. because it is first <LI> item so it is not visible.

Instead of first <LI> item, it  should be at position where it always display while loading more items.

same issue is also in telerik demo website : http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/combobox/examples/populatingwithdata/autocompletesql/defaultcs.aspx

In a FormView, a routine scenario is to provide a control that has some sort of picklist (either DropDown or ComboBoxList) that may be tied to a field that contains a DBNull.

An example might be where one of the fields in the Telerik Profile specifies their favorite Telerik Product (KendoUI, ASP.NET AJAX, etc.).  However, their might be profiles where the user has not selected a favorite product.  Assuming that the Product list comes from a related table, then this field (say, FavoriteProductId) in the Profile would contain a DBNull.

I would like Telerik to add "declarative" functionality on the RadComboBox and RadDropDownList to handle the case where SelectedValue = DBNull.

Below is an example of what this might look like for a RadComboBox (inside of a FormView -- note: only showing the RadComboBox declaration).

<telerik:RadComboBox Style="z-index: 9100"  ID="rcbFirstOrder" runat="server" Width="50px" SelectedValue='<%# Bind("FirstOrder") %>'     HandleDBNull="true" >
    <Items>
        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="" Value="DbNull (or Null or Nothing)" />
        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="No" Value="0" />
        <telerik:RadComboBoxItem runat="server" Text="Yes" Value="255" />
    </Items>
</telerik:RadComboBox>

Notice the new property ---    HandleDBNull = true       and the ability to define the value on a RadComboBoxItem as DBNull (or null or nothing) -- some string to define DBNull.

Although the above example shows all the RadComboBoxItems defined declaratively, this scenario could easily be extended to use AppendDataBoundItems = true and the non-DBNull values to come from a Data Source.

Thanks for taking the time to consider this functionality.  This enhancement would remove all of the code-behind tweaks that are currently incorporated to use a ComboBoxList / DropDownList with a database field that can contain DBNull.

The OnClientTextChange event is triggered inconsistently in RadComboBox.

Typing custom text in the following RadComboBox and pressing enter does not fire the event:

        <script lang="javascript" type="text/javascript">
            function OnClientTextChange(sender, eventArgs) {
                alert("You typed " + sender.get_text());
            }
        </script>

        <telerik:RadComboBox
            ID="RadComboBox1"
            runat="server"
            AllowCustomText="true"
            OnClientTextChange="OnClientTextChange">
            <Items>
                <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="item1" Value="item1" />

Example demo: https://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/combobox/examples/overview/defaultcs.aspx

And here's what JAWS sees:

Note the extra unlabeled "Button" following every combo box. This is confusing to the reader. They have no way to know that it is associated with the preceding field.

Additionally, I've noted that when aria-support is turned on, this button becomes focusable. Tabindex="0" is added to the span inside the text box. We prefer the older functionality where the button was not a tab stop. Which is the same behavior you have when aria support is turned off. For reference, see your own aria demo:

Note that the tab key stops on the drop down arrow. (You can check the previously linked demo and see that the arrows in those boxes are not tab stops.)

If right-click the arrow and inspect, you'll find the following: 

<span id="ctl00_ContentPlaceholder1_RadComboBox2_Arrow" class="p-icon p-i-arrow-60-down" role="button" aria-controls="ctl00_ContentPlaceholder1_RadComboBox2_listbox" tabindex="0"></span>

Adding aria support should not change behavior, so we'd prefer the tab stop was removed.

In our own application, we have additional problems when the button is focused and activated with either the "space" or "enter" keys, it refocuses the field, but it does not actually open the drop down. I do not see that problem in your demo. However, if the arrow button was removed as a tab stop and from the INS+F5 dialog, this would not be a problem.

Please note that all of the above is in Chrome. 

Workaround: 

Using the following code in the OnClientLoad event of the ComboBox:

  var _DropDown_OnClientLoad = function (sender, args) {
    var input = sender.get_inputDomElement();

    //Remove tabindex from down-arrow button. We never want to focus this button.
    $telerik.$(input).siblings("button").find("[role=button]").attr("tabindex", null);

    //hide the down-arrow button from screen readers. The entire combo box
    //should be considered a single control.
    $telerik.$(input).siblings("button").attr("aria-hidden", "true");
}

The input box (TextBox) portion of the Rad Combo box could benefit from the ability to customize/format the data presented within said element.  Having the ability to toggle it to a multi-line TextBox would aid in this ability as well.  Having the ability to implement custom html in the form of a template, perhaps a SelectionBoxTemplate, would open the control of the display to be completely customizable.

Please consider this enhancement in a future release.

Thanks...

FYI: this is basically an edit of a previous post.  Original didn't allow edits.

Please add a Server Side event for OnBlur or OnClose for the RadComboBox with the option for an auto postback.

The Telerik support team suggested using the "TextChanged" event.

However, this does not work for my purpose and here is why:

Mainly because it appears that an event fires immediately after each check/uncheck.

I have been using a dropdowncheckbox control by another vendor in multiple projects over the past 3 years (many, many instances).  It fires an event when you click anywhere out side the dropdown or when you collapse the dropdown (close).  This is perfect because many of these dropdowns supply parameters to SSRS reports that are generated on the webpage and I can iterate through the object and process all of the items that are checked at the same time, pass all parameters to the various reports.

Users of these website have requested that after selecting (checking) which values they want to choose, they want the reports to run automatically and don't want to click a "Run reports" button. I am doing this currently with the other control.

*** How could I possibly determine when the user is done checking/unchecking items using the "TextChanged" event?  

With an OnBlur or OnClose event it's a No-Brainer.  Event --> Do Processing...

Our company made a decision to standardize our tool set and picked Telerik as that toolset vendor.  The lack of having an event that fires similar to the control that I have been using in the past will require unnecessary code modification.

In summary, if there was a similar event I could simply rename each instance of my C# event handlers (methods) across all projects, then modify that code to iterate through the RadComboBox instead of the control I currently use and be done.  Find --> Replace, mostly. 

For the one (1) instance of the RadComboBox that I have tried I was able to create a work-around by placing code in the IsPostback of the Page_Load event and iterate through the radcombobox, getting the checked values and then doing whatever processing  needs to be done.  This not work for most of the pages in my projects mentioned above due to different circumstances.

Thanks!

Using the client-side requestItems method of a RadComboBox to fire the refresh of it's items(with a call to clearCache before to ensure that the refresh is performed), doesn't always perform the async callback request, sometimes resulting in the "Loading" text being added at the top of the combo's items drop-down and staying there (as the callback to the server is never fired, so it's result never received). 

After quite a bit of trials, I finally managed to figure out that the issue arise when there is an async postback in progress on the page (to refresh an update panel) when requestItems is called.

Stepping through the requestItems call with IE F12 tools, I found that this is due to the fact that the Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager do not perform callbacks if there is an async postback in progress. I think that the RadComboBox should detect that situation and wait until the end of the async postback to fire it's requestItems callback, otherwise the combo get stuck in the "loading in progress" state, waiting for the end of the callback that will never happens as the PageRequestManager did not start it. Additionally, in F12 Network tab, I can see that there is no request performed for the callback to request the items of the combo-box.

I reproduce the issue with the following steps:
1- Have a page with a RadComboBox, a ScriptManager with partial rendering enabled and an UpdatePanel.
2- In the browser, trigger the async postback to refresh the UpdatePanel
3- From JavaScript, while the async postback is in progress, call the requestItems method of the RadComboBox
4- Open the drop-down of the combo, and you can see the "Loading" text at the top, with the initial list of items. And it stays like this until another call is made to requestItems when there is no async post-back in progress which will actually perform the callback.

This error comes up often for this control and workarounds have been discussed and posted.  See below

http://www.telerik.com/forums/radcombobox-selection-out-of-range-error 
 

The feature request is the following:

1.  Add an Attribute to the RadComboBox, RadDropdownList (and any other controls that suffer from this issue).

2. Let's call the Attribute   --   AppendIfSelectedValueMissing.

3. This attribute would be a boolean (True / False).  Default is FALSE.

4. If AppendIfSelectedValueMissing=True  then when the value of record is being Databound to a RadComboBox, RadDropDownList, etc.  A check (or Try/Catch) would occur to ensure that the Value exists in the DataSourceList and if it does NOT exist in the list then the SelectedValue would be Appended to the List.  Thus, eliminating the "Selection out of range, Parameter, Value" error.

This occur often because some lists get changed over time; however, the historical data may have a value that is no longer on the list -- thus triggering the error.

For example, let's say we ask for a user's Favorite Color.  Our original list was:
Red, Green, Blue

but for some reason -- management, changing user requirements, etc. the new list is

Red, Orange, Blue

Now, if we DataBind a RadComboBox to a historical record with Green as value, we get the "Selection Out of Range" errror.

What I am proposing is -- if we set the AppendIfSelectedValueMissing = True then 
databinding to a historical record with Green would have the following occur.

List from DB ---   Red, Orange, Blue
SelectedValue --    Green
AppendIfSelectedValueMissing
New List for Ctrl --  Red, Orange, Blue, Green

Thus, the error goes away, the historical data can stay the way it is and the lists can adjust their choices over time.

All good for everyone!!!

Thanks for your consideration.

Given a RadComboBox with search, if the user enters some search text and then clicks on one of the filtered entries in the dropdown list the validation event is fired as the entry box loses focus and results in a 'false' return from validation as it uses the 'Text' property which is the search string. Validation is then refired as a result of clicking on the entry.
However, the initial 'false' return can cause unwanted behaviour in code that depends on the validation event.
I can supply a sample project demonstrating the problem, but it needs more than the 10 MB upload limit.

Hi Telerik Support,

 

How do I move loading box to bottom of the combo box list when using load on demand feature. the case is we're using ShowMoreResultsBox=true and EnableVirtualScrolling=true and trying to get next batch of data on a heavy query, the loading box not showing on the list see image (2020-12-03 14_31_40-Agent - Verint Express.png).

can we show the loading box on the bottom of the dropdownlist, so user is aware that the data still being loaded.

Thank you

I believe there's a bug in the RadComboBox WebServiceSettings tag. I use a webservice to populate the items for this RadComboBox

When I put in a fully qualified domain name in the property 'Path' and the hostname contains uppercase characters, I receive a 500 error. If the hostname is in lowercase, the items are populated correctly. The error is: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'webServiceFailedNoMsg' of undefined.

I've enclosed the Webservice1.asmx, the Default.aspx and their code behind files which can illustrate the problem very easily. There's also a log file with the details of the error.

The correct SelectedValue should be return.

Thing that have been tried so far:

1: upgrade the telerik to the latest version (2020.114) ---> issue persists

2: set autopostback to "true" problem solved

3: use other browsers (chrome, FireFox, new Version 79.0.309.68 ) issue disappears

In WebService binding scenario, the text of the items is not encoded and HTML code might get executed. 

In Server-side Load on Demand binding this is not observed. 

The following code can be used as a temporary workaround for WebService binding scenario: 

<script type="text/javascript">
    Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxItem.prototype._renderItemContent = function (d) {
        if (this.get_imageUrl()) {

To maintain accessibility consistency with normal HTML select comboboxes, we need the RadComboBox to support the Home and End keys to jump to the 1st and last item respectively.  Currently, it just moves the text cursor to the start/end of the textfield.

If the change can't be made globally, can a new property be set to control this behavior?
Ideally too, Page Up/Down can jump multiple items at a time.  Currently, it scrolls the page.

See a 2009 forum post too (from someone else):
http://www.telerik.com/forums/radcombobox-home-end-page-up-page-down-keys
I see the other keyboard shortcuts listed here:
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/combobox/examples/functionality/keyboardsupport/defaultcs.aspx

Per Anton: The keyboard support is specification is implemented according to the article (https://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-wai-aria-practices-20130307/#combobox) which is why there is no support for these keys.

We would like to request these additional keys be supported anyway.
