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.
