    Hi Wassim,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Please review our DataBinding example. It illustrates how you can implement a MultiColumn combo using the ItemTemplate property. The last combobox in that example illustrates also the autocomplete behavior.

    Hi Telerik team,
                                 I have the below requirement. In which lets say I have a country and country Code. I want to show the Combo box to auto populate on basis of both the columns. Please refer to the diagram attached. Actually I am looking for something similar as the infragistic wincombo control (http://www.infragistics.com/dotnet/netadvantage/winforms/wincombo.aspx#Overview
    ). In which if you start typing in the combo box (Provided its editable), it will suggest auto populate options by considering both the Country and Code.

    So in my attached example, lets say in the combo Box the user types "Au" it should look both in Country Code and Country columns of the combo box and retrieve me results (or suggest me results) where in it starts with "Au".

    Hello,

    RadComboBox can autocomplete or search using only one property of the data objects. To workaround this behavior you could create an additional property in your data object that will combine the values of the two properties - Code and Country.
