modify the combobox so any custom value (Text entered) is only bound to TEXT property and not the VALUE property
Currently when you enter custom text (referred to as custom value) the control sets the text entered as both the TEXT and VALUE.

I suggest this should operate like the Telerik ASP.NET combobox which only binds custom entered text to TEXT and null as the VALUE.

This then allows you to differentiate between an item selected from the list and one entered.  When you call text() it would return the selected item text or custom text entered and value() would return the selected item data value or NULL if custom text.

I am wondering about the functionality discussed in this post. It is similar to something I am trying to do. I need to update the selected text in the combo box but instead of setting the value to null, I need tio retain the current value. In other words, I need to allow users to change the text of an existing element and save that as an update to the element. I need to associate the custom text with an existing value. Not sure that is what is meant by syncing up. Also, is this functionality available in the MVC fluent interface? Is there a Telerik version needed? Thanks
