Hello, Ahmed,

Thank you for writing.  
 
In order to enable autocomplete functionality with "contains" searching it is necessary to simply set the RadAutoCompleteBox.AutoCompleteMode property to AutoCompleteMode.Suggest
this.radAutoCompleteBox1.AutoCompleteDataSource = this.productsBindingSource;
this.radAutoCompleteBox1.AutoCompleteDisplayMember = "ProductName";
this.radAutoCompleteBox1.AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.Suggest;




I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help. 
Regards,
Dess
