    For the RadAutoComplete control for Xamarin (release 2017.3.1103.4), I have tried setting the CompletionMode property both in markup and the code-behind, but the typeahead always behaves as though "StarsWith" was the value instead of "Contains."


    Is this a bug in the current release?

    Hi, Sheldon,

    I could not reproduce this behavior in any of the platforms. I have used the GettingStarted example from the SDK Samples Browser(available in the Examples folder of your local Telerik UI for Xamarin installation). Here is the code:

    var autoComplete = new RadAutoComplete { Watermark = "Search here..." };
    autoComplete.CompletionMode = Telerik.XamarinForms.Input.AutoComplete.CompletionMode.Contains;
    // << autocomplete-getting-started-csharp
    autoComplete.ItemsSource = new List<string>()
        "Freda Curtis",
        "Jeffery Francis",
        "Eva Lawson",
        "Emmett Santos",
        "Theresa Bryan",
        "Jenny Fuller",
        "Terrell Norris",
        "Eric Wheeler",
        "Julius Clayton",
        "Alfredo Thornton",
        "Roberto Romero",
        "Orlando Mathis",
        "Eduardo Thomas",
        "Harry Douglas"
    var panel = new StackLayout();
    this.Content = panel;

    The behavior works as expected. Please provide more information on your setup. You can try rebuilding your example after changing the CompletionMode and testing.
