Hello J,

I am afraid that the AutoComplete does not support any grouping behavior. I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Kind Regards,

Thanks for replying.  I'm going to attempt to generate my grouping manually via templates.  Do you know off hand how to reference a template as a variable so I can have a cleaner template property? I'm not sure how to go about doing this. e.g.

.Template("itemTemplate") 
...

<script id="itemTemplate" type="text/x-kendo-template">
    <div class="header">#: data.ModuleName#</div>
</script>

Hello J,

Basically everything covered here could be applied the same way to the template of the AutoComplete. Also you can invoke function like so:

Template("#= myTemplateHandler(data)#")
 
 
<script>
    function myTemplateHandler(customer){
            return "some template" + customer.FristName;
     }
<script>

Thank You Petur!  One more question if you don't mind, is there a way to change the background color of the dropdown?  It appears gray.  I can change the template background, but it seems there's still a boarder of the dropdown that's gray... Maybe there's a way to fully fill the dropdown control with a template?

Hello JP,

Basically you can change the DropDownList CSS with JavaScript like demonstrated in this JsBin:
