In order to apply the exact same appearance for the items as the one in the DropDown
as soon as a selection is made you need to apply a custom BoxesItemTemplate -
it is used to customize the way the items are rendered in the TextBox
part of the control. We have created a sample project hat demonstrates how to apply such a Template and you could run and evaluate it. Please, notice that the BoxesItemTemplate
is applied only whenever the control is in Multiple
selection mode. If you are using Single
selection mode the only approach that we could suggest you to achieve the desired is to override the ToString
method of the custom class you use as a source for RadAutoCompleteBox
By the end of the week we will add an article in our help documentation and an SDK example providing more detailed information about creating and applying BoxesItemTemplate
Hopes this helps.
