MultiColumnComboBox DropDown Doesn't Close After Context Menu Is Opened


Product Version
Product RadMultiColumnComboBox for WPF


Setting the KeepDropDownOpen property of RadMultiColumnComboBox to False enables the auto closing feature of the drop down part of the control. However, opening a RadContextMenu for an element inside the dropdown is breaking the functionality. This means that clicking outside of the RadMultiColumnComboBox control won't close its drop down.


To resolve this, set the RestoreFocusToTargetElement property of the RadContextMenu control to True.

<telerik:RadMultiColumnComboBox KeepDropDownOpen="False"> 
            <telerik:RadContextMenu RestoreFocusToTargetElement="True"> 
                <telerik:RadMenuItem Header="Copy"/>
