Hi,

I saw that in 2013 Q3 SP2 this feature was implemented (http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/154/Feedback/Details/110982-add-radmulticolumncombobox-autocomplete-mode).

How can we make use of it? I already had simple code to do this, so I'm wondering what changed...

Thanks!

Hi Francois, 

Thank you for contacting us.

In Q3 2013 SP2 we introduced the auto complete feature in RadMultiColumnComboBox. This feature allows you to set AutoCompleteMode property to different modes (Suggest, SuggestAppend, Append or None). In our Demo Application we have an example which demonstrates that behaviour. 

You can use this code example to set the AutoCompleteMode:
FilterDescriptor descriptor = new FilterDescriptor(this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.DisplayMember, FilterOperator.StartsWith, string.Empty);
this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.EditorControl.FilterDescriptors.Add(descriptor);
//set the AutoCompleteMode property to one of modes Append, None, Suggest, SuggestAppend
this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.MultiColumnComboBoxElement.AutoCompleteMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoCompleteMode.Suggest;
I also attached a video which demonstrates the feature.

Hope this will help you. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Regards,
Ralitsa

I'm really struggling with this.  The code is so strait forward and easy to understand.  I have it exactly as described above.  Am I missing something simple.  This does not work with the most current versions of the controls.  Any help?

Hi Carisch, 

Thank you for contacting us. 

I tried the attached demo project with our latest versions Q3 2013 SP2 (2013.3.1328) and Q1 2014 (2014.1.226) and it works as expected. You can refer to Demo application where you can find another example which demonstrates you the auto-complete options in RadMultiColumnComboBox. The location where you can find it is: START >> All Programs >> Telerik >> UI for WinForms [version] >> Examples >> C# for Visual Studio 2010 >> Open C# Demo Application in Visual Studio - UI for WinForms. The example is in MultiColumn Combobox. 

If the issue still exists, I would kindly ask you to send me more detailed information such as the exact version of our suite you use. It will be helpful if you send me a sample project to investigate the precise case. Please note that you have to open a new support ticket in order to be able to attach your project.

I am looking forward to your reply.

Regards,
