    Can this control be used with data from multiple sources with separators for each data source?

    Hi Vic,

    I am afraid that this is not a supported scenario.

    However you can implement a custom logic to get the data from the different datasouces and add it to an ordinary ArrayList.
    Then you can set this ArrayList as a control datasource - you can find more details about binding to ArrayList here.

    The binding part is easy.  Is there a value that I can have that will match anything that the user types in like an * for example?  If that's the case, I can manually add my own dividers between each dataset and create exactly what I'm looking for.

    Hi Vic,

    RadAutoCompleteBox performs a query for data after the user has typed some text.
    Only the rows that match the text entered are returned and populated in control dropdown.
    I am afraid that currently the control does not provide an option for selecting all records upon typing a particular character.
    Let me suggest you try to use RadComboBox instead of RadAutoCompleteBox.
