    Is it possible to achieve bellow functionality?

    User can copy email from outlook and paste in Telerik’s Auto Complete textbox.

    1.       On paste event, verify every email id from back end tables.
                a.       If no matching entries are found then mark that value as red.
                b.      If multiple entries are found then turn it to blue so that when user clicks on it show a dropdown with matching entries so that user can select desired value from it.
    2.       When user selects Send Message validate if Auto Complete box has all the resolved names, if not prompt the user that about it and give option that emails will be sent to only resolved entries. How to separate resolved names from unresolved names (from client side)?

    Notes: We have table, which stores all email Id.

    Hello Zakir,

    I am afraid that the desired scenario could not be achieved. When certain contact is copied from the outlook, the clipboard saves not only the Name and Surname, but also the actual email address, which is enclosed by brackets. Inserting such brackets in the input of the AutoCompleteBox mixes its rendering and creates a new element. This may reflect as many unexpected issues.
