    When using .DataTextField() you are only able to search by one variable. Is there a way to search by multiple?

    For instance, using .DataTextField("CorpName") returns a list of items that start with the Corp name and .DataTextField("AccountNumber") returns a list of items that start with Account Number... I would like to return the search by both CorpName and AccountNumber.

    I am able to achieve this with autoComplete because each time it does a search, it is querying the database through a webservice and is therefore searching by both fields... but since this is a combobox, it only queries the database once and therefore I need to use .DataTextField() to search the returned list.

    Hello Richard,

    The ComboBox does not support filtering by multiple fields. Nevertheless, you can enable filtering and use your "autocomplete" approach.
