    I want to use a webservice method as datasource for my autocomplete box. The method should take the text input of the box as filter argument and populate the filtered result to the autocomplete list. I cannot find any documentation on this. In silverlight's autocomplete box it is possible to use the populating event.

    I would also like to provide a filtered data set from a web service.  My data source has 9300 items.  I have a web service that take a parameter and provides matching results.

    Can I somehow wire this up to my RadAutoCompleteBox so that i dont need to load all 9300 items from the webservice?

    Thanks,

    -Chris.

    Hello Chris,

    Thanks for contacting us and for your question.

    Currently, RadAutoCompleteBox does not support the WebService scenario. However, we are planning to extend RadAutoCompleteBox to support it for our next major release which is due to the beginning of 2012 (February).

    Let us know if you have further questions or feedback to share.

    Regards,
