Why don't you include a boolean property to show selected image inside input ? This is already a code library to do it : http://www.telerik.com/support/code-library/show-the-selected-item-image-in-input
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.
Hello, Here is how i bind the dropdown. when i trype anything in dropdown it only search based on product code, but i also want search to perform on product code, Product name and wood type code. Please let me know how can i achieve same. <telerik:RadComboBoxDataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"DataTextField="ProductCode"DataValueField="idxProductPriceID"EnableAutomaticLoadOnDemand="True"ItemsPerRequest="10"ShowMoreResultsBox="true"EnableVirtualScrolling="true"AutoPostBack="true"OnSelectedIndexChanged="drpProduct_SelectedIndexChanged"EnableLoadOnDemand="true"EnableScreenBoundaryDetection="true"HighlightTemplatedItems="true"MarkFirstMatch="false"Filter="Contains"ID="drpProduct"DropDownAutoWidth="Enabled"Width="100px"runat="server"><HeaderTemplate><tablestyle="width: 100%"cellspacing="0"cellpadding="0"><tr><tdstyle="width: 20%;">Product Code </td><tdstyle="width: 40%;">Product Name </td><tdstyle="width: 40%;">Wood Type Code </td></tr></table></HeaderTemplate><ItemTemplate><tablestyle="width: 100%"cellspacing="0"cellpadding="0"><tr><tdstyle="width: 20%;"><%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "ProductCode")%></td><tdstyle="width: 40%;"><%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "ProductName")%></td><tdstyle="width: 40%;"><%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "WoodTypeName")%></td></tr></table></ItemTemplate></telerik:RadComboBox><asp:SqlDataSourcerunat="server"ID="SqlDataSource1"ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:Default %>"ProviderName="System.Data.SqlClient"SelectCommandType="StoredProcedure"SelectCommand="3_ProductList_Select"></asp:SqlDataSource>
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!

This error comes up often for this control and workarounds have been discussed and posted. See below http://www.telerik.com/forums/radcombobox-error-selection-out-of-range-parameter-name-value http://www.telerik.com/forums/selection-out-of-range-excpetion http://www.telerik.com/forums/selection-out-of-range-parameter-name-error-need-to-be-able-to-set-values-that-don-t-exist-in-the-combobox http://www.telerik.com/forums/selection-out-of-range-parameter-name-value http://www.telerik.com/forums/selection-out-of-range-parameter-name-value-radcombobox-in-radgrid 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.
MarkFirstMatch and Filter functionalities are not supported when checkboxes are enabled, as specified in the Checkbox Support help article. If you remove these two functionalities, the Check All checkbox works as expected. I want to have on the MarkFirstMatch and the filter on and the "all" to be shown. see ticket number 942452
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. [From ticket 1083598]
RadCombobox WAI-ARIA improvements
1. When we have a selection but do not have filtering and custom text:
aria-autocomplete: list ---> Combobox list item
2. When we have selection and filtering: ---> Combobox inline completion list item
3. disabled: aria-autocomplete: none
In combo box once a value is selected there is no option to clear the selection. We can have an additional button outside the combo box to achieve the same.
This will require some additional coding.
Since this is a regular scenario why can't there be a property within the RadCombo Box that makes clear selection button visible next to the combo box drop-down button and does the task of clearing the selection?
We have evaluated your controls for few days for the last 4 years now. And you still dont support check boxes and load on demand. (we keep getting the same response from your forms). There are other companies already do that. If you can include this feature in your future development that will be great. We can not use RadAutoCompleteBox control as the users do not what they are searching for. How come no one else asking for this. All what needed is to cache the values after the control is loaded. Thanks.
If a combobox uses load-on-demand and an item is selected, after postback the item list will be filtered to only items that contain the text of the selected item. This type of filtered loading is desirable when the user is typing into the combobox and is expecting a reduced item list. However it can be unexpected behavior if an item is selected, the user was not typing into the combobox, a postback occurs, and then the item list has been reduced. This video demonstrates the current behavior: http://screencast.com/t/NVkDc3KYR And so my request is for the combobox items list to remain the same after postback when the user did not intend for the item list to be reduced.
add ability for radcomboboxitem to expose the attributes collection for the selected item when client-side binding occurs via a webservice. (based on support id 87724). Currently only selected text and values are accessible when posted back. The attributes related to the selected item are as important to provide proper context once on the server side. Again, this only necessary for the selected item, not all items as I understand the ramifications to client side performance.
ComboBox keeps the dropdown aligned to either sides of input field. If due to content overflow e.g in a small frame input field is placed slightly out of viewport then it would be better to check the boundaries if ScreenBoundaryDetection is enabled and keep the dropdown in view and not necessarily aligned with input.
