To say that you have "Cascading ComboBox" functionality is misleading. You do have "Cascading ListBox" functionality - whereas if a value is picked in the parent listbox, the child will populate with a filtered, dependent list. Changing the parent changes the dependent items in the child list box.

However, the difference with ComboBoxes is that the user can also type a value in, if it doesn't appear in the bound dataset. While this does work as expected for the child ComboBox in the cascading example - it DOES NOT work for the parent. If you type a value into the parent, the child ComboBox remains disabled. You should be able to at least type into the child box. 

We have a simple need for a Manufacturer / Model selection in two cascading ComboBoxes. If the manufacturer does not exist, we want to be able to allow the user to type it in. Since it's a new manufacturer - there are no associated models in the bound dataset, yet. The dependent child ComboBox should at least be enabled so the user can enter the new model.

This behavior can be experienced in your online example. If you pick a value in the parent, the child refreshes and rebinds accordingly. But if you type in the parent - the child remains disabled. This is a bug, if you intend on maintaining that you have "Cascading ComboBox" functionality.

I was given a "workaround" by your support team - but there are still lingering effects (especially on reloading the form with existing data) that would not be an issue if the cascading combobox implementation was completed properly.

Hi Team, 

I would like to request to include in the built-in API the functionality to hide the FixedGroupHeaderTemplate.  I like the appearance of the UI for ASP.NET AJAX RadComboBox when it is grouping, and it would be nice if the Kendo UI ComboBox could be configured to have the same look without manipulating CSS and adding extra code to the DataBound event.

Thank you!

I want this https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/editors/combobox/how-to/customize/prevent-custom-values to be built-in. Instead of custom code, I would just add option preventCustomValues: true and I'm done. Thanks.

Bug report

When a ComboBox is disabled, if the user tries to select the value by double click, additional new line is added to the selection

Reproduction of the problem

  1. Open the Api ComboBoxDemo
  2. Select an item
  3. Click on the 'Disable' button
  4. Double click in the ComboBox to select the value
  5. Paste it

Current behavior

In the Demos a new line is added before the value of the ComboBox. When the same Demo is opened in a Dojo, a part from the text above the ComboBox is also highlighted. (screencast)

Expected/desired behavior

Only the text in ComboBox should be selected even if the widget is disabled.

Workaround

The element holding the down arrow icon could be hidden when the ComboBox is disabled. - Dojo

If you bind a ComboBox widget to a datasource containing arbitrary objects that contain a "data" field, the dropdown items will be "undefined" instead of the value of the dataTextField. I'm guessing the data field is messing up the template variable.

var formData = [
   {
      key: '1',
      description: 'CT Safety',
      formTypeCd: 'S',
      data: {foo: '', bar: ''}
   },
   {
      key: '2',
      description: 'MR Safety',
      formTypeCd: 'S',
      data: {foo: '', bar: ''}
   },
   {
      key: '3',
      description: 'Medicare > 60 Billing',
      formTypeCd: 'I',
      data: {}
   }
];

$("#forms-combobox").kendoComboBox({
   dataTextField: "description",
   dataValueField: "key",
   dataSource: formData
});

While floating label is available on textbox and maskedtextbox, no feature is available on the combobox, unless you are using Kendo for Angular or Vue.  Can we get one for jQuery?

Is it possible to limit the results coming back from a filter. We are using a combobox on a large dataset and if there are a large number of matches then the combobox slows to a crawl as it tried to respond.

I'm using the default theme:  "@progress/kendo-theme-default": "4.18.2" with some custom overrides.

The generated CSS has the following incorrect rule (because of the unitless zero, see https://www.w3.org/TR/css3-values/#calc-type-checking ):


.k-combobox .k-dropdown-wrap .k-clear-value {
	calc( calc( 1.2em + 8px) + 0 + 6px)
}

This rules comes from the following scss:

$picker-icon-offset: calc( #{$picker-select-calc-size} + #{$picker-select-border-width}  + #{$input-icon-offset}) !default; 

The unitless zero comes from this value:

$picker-select-border-width: 0 !default;

As a result, the "X" in a combobox overlaps the value.

Currently, the "suggest" option of the ComboBox is designed to work only in a combination with 'filter:"startswith"'. If you open this Dojo and enter "T' in the ComboBox, then focus the ComboBox out then the "Two" ComboBox item will be selected.

If in the above demo, we change the filter configuration to "contains", when we enter "T" and focus the ComboBox out, the behavior will be the same, and "Two" will be selected. If we instead of "T" enter "w" and focus the ComboBox out then "two" won't be selected. To make the "Two" item selected, with "filter:'contains'" configuration, we can use the below workaround.

No matter the below workaround, it will be very useful if the below logic or similar one can be built-in in the ComboBox component.

<input id="combobox" />
<script>
var fruit = [
    {code: 1, name: "One" },
    {code: 2, name: "Two"},
    {code: 3, name: "Three"}
];

var ds = new kendo.data.DataSource({
data: fruit
});

$("#combobox").kendoComboBox({
  dataTextField: "name",
  dataValueField: "code",
   suggest: true,
   filter: "contains",
  dataSource: ds,
  change: function(e) {
    var comboBox = $("#combobox").data("kendoComboBox");
    var dataItem = comboBox.dataItem();
    if (dataItem === undefined) {
//special code for mobile browsers to auto select the first entry
if (comboBox.text() != "") {
ds.filter({ field: "name", operator:"contains", value: comboBox.text() });
if (ds.view().length > 0) {
comboBox.select(function(dataItem) {
return dataItem.name === ds.view()[0].name;
});
}
}
    }
  }
});
</script>

A combobox that uses a grouped datasource does not adhere to WCAG 1.3.1. When a user navigates the options in the combobox popup, the group relationship is established for sighted users but the group is not announced to disabled users.

As per https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/combobox/events/select I am expecting that select does not fire when the user enters text but does not select an item from the list. This is consistent with your other widgets like AutoComplete.

 

However as seen in this dojo https://dojo.telerik.com/ESOJibEB select triggers whenever I enter text and click off the box instead of only when I click an item in the combobox.

 

How to reproduce:

  • Open above Dojo
  • Click in the combobox and type some text.
  • Do not click on an item in the list and instead just click anywhere else on the page.
  • Check console and you will see select has been printed.

 

If you need any other help, let me know.

 

Kind Regards,

Ben

 

PS Im forced to select a browser but this is the same across both chrome and firefox.

Hi,

You prob. already know this, but in Chrome attribute autocomplete should be "disabled" instead of "off" for e.g. combobox - then we don't get the auto fill.

Even thought it has no id nor name - I think it looks at the lavbel - in my case its "Name" and the combobox get a big Chrome auto fill from the address book. Setting it from "off" to "disabled" will disable both auto complete AND auto fill.

The same goes for the AJAX Combobox - will you notify that team too? Current hotfix for that is `$(".rcbInput").attr("autocomplete", "disabled");`

Thanks

Bug report
When submitting a selection in the ComboBox via Enter keypress an incorrect item is selected.

Reproduction of the problem
Run this dojo
Enter 199 in the input field and:
Click outside of the input field - text() returns 199, value() returns 199
Hit Tab key - text() returns 199, value() returns 199
Hit Enter key - text() returns 4, value() returns 199
With Kendo UI versions after 2018.2.516 pressing the Tab key outputs the same result as pressing the Enter key.

Current behavior
An incorrect item from dataSource is being selected on Enter keypress.

Expected/desired behavior
Selection modes should return same item.
