I tried to reproduce your case but to no avail. Here you can find the test project
where my RadAutoCompleteTextView is loaded on the initial page. Even on initial load, the auto-complete is working as expected. As a possible suggestion compare your code with the one provided and look for differences in the setup that might cause this behavior. Also, make sure that the data used for loading the suggested views is loaded on your initial load. For example
in the test application
I am binding to my view-model (where the data for the suggestion views is coming from) using the loaded
and in the code behind
import viewModel = require(
page = args.object;
Perhaps you are using different lifecycle event like navigatedTo
instead of loaded.
If the above suggestion doesn't resolve your case please send us more detailed information including the type of project you are working with (NativeScript Core or NativeScript with Angular-2) and even better a code snippet or sample project that reproduces this behavior.
