Hi,

I wonder if Telerik WPF controls has a textbox that supports autocomplete as the user types in, similar to the Google search textbox (not a combo box). I have a repository of around 4000 items that I want bind as the data source for this autocomplete, and display a matching result as the user types (just top 7 or 8 of course). With Each new character typed, the suggested list get updated accordingly from those 4000 items.

Any suggestion how to achieve this behavior?

Regards

Hi,

We are currently developing a RadAutocompleteBox control that will greatly fit into your scenario. It will be released until the end of the year.

Hi Bharath,

If you need to be able to enter only text which is present in the items you would need to use ComboBox instead of the AutoCompleteBox. By setting its IsReadOnly and IsEditable properties to true you would be to type only  existing text. For more details about the Edit Modes of the ComboBox you can check the following article from our online help documentation:
http://www.telerik.com/help/wpf/radcombobox-features-edit-modes.html

Hope this helps.
