    There are client APIs to know when data is being requested or when the user clicks the search button but I haven't found any examples of calling an external web service (using JQuery for example) and adding the search results using a client method. Does the search box support this?

    The TreeView for example supports adding RadTreeViewNodes programmatically after querying an external " web service" as you call it in your documentation. I would like to be able to this with the RadSearchBox as well: manually query an external web service then add the results to the dropdown.

    Currently there is no such API  which support control population via binding to arbitrary JSON, but we shall try to provide solution of this case as well.

    Thank you for your feedback on the matter.
