I have an Autocomplete control that is bound to an ObservableCollection of my view search result view models. However, when I update the collection (clear it and add each result) the control only shows the "No Results Found" message.

I'm not using any code behind for this, I have a Behavior that handles the TextChanged event which calls an ICommand on my view model to update the list of results. I've posted the code for my view below, if you need more context I can provide the Behavior or View Model code as well.


<telerikInput:RadAutoCompleteView Grid.Row="0" ItemsSource="{Binding RetailerSearchResults, Mode=TwoWay}">
                    <sharedBehaviors:TelerikAutoCompleteTextChangedBehavior Command="{Binding RetailerSearchTextChangedCommand}" Timeout="1000" />

                    <DataTemplate x:DataType="{x:Type viewModels:RetailerListItemViewModel}">
                            <Label Text="{Binding DisplayName}"></Label>

Hi Andrew,

You have a behavior that uses the text changed event to modify the items source? This will interfere with the AutoCompleteView's internal behavior because you're always changing the items. That is the job the the control's internal logic, not your business layer.

If you are looking for a load on demand-like behavior, then please use the AutoCompleteView | Remote Search feature of the control instead of a custom behavior.

Further Assistance

If you still continue to have trouble, please take the following steps so we can assist:

  1. Go to the Your Account - Get Support page
  2. Open a new Support Ticket (select UI for Xamarin > AutoCompleteView)
  3. Zip up the files you are using for that view, the view model and the custom behavior
  4. Attach that ZIP file to your ticket and explain how we can reproduce the problem

With that info, the Xamarin team can directly investigate and provide you with an answer/solution. Good luck!


Side Note

I'm not sure why you're using TwoWay binding for the ItemsSource... unless you do want the UI control to update the view model value to null. I recommend using the default OneWay mode.

<telerikInput:RadAutoCompleteView ItemsSource="{Binding RetailerSearchResults}">
