After adding a RadAutoCompleteBox instance to your page, you can initialize its SuggestionsSource
property so that suggestions can be shown while the user types in some text. The following C# code snippet demonstrates
how to prepare a list of strings as a suggestions source:
List<string> suggestions = new List<string>();
for (int i = 0; i < 50; i++)
suggestions.Add("Suggestion " + i);
this.radAutoCompleteBox.SuggestionsSource = suggestions;
After completing these steps RadAutoCompleteBox will be ready to use.
You bind the SuggestionsSource property to a collection of more complex business objects and
define which property will on the business object will be used to filter suggestions. This is explained
in the Using Complex Business Objects topic in the Features category.
