Hello,

The drop down list autocomplete datasource can be any valid datasource. E.g

RadDropDownList radDropDownList1 = new RadDropDownList();
radDropDownList1.AutoCompleteDataSource = // a data source
radDropDownList1.AutoCompleteDisplayMember = "DisplayMember";
radDropDownList1.AutoCompleteValueMember = "ValueMember";
radDropDownList1.AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.Suggest;

You can see additional information at this help topic
Hope that helps

Hi,

Thank you for writing.

You can use Ricard's solution or you can implement a custom CustomAutoSuggestHelper and set another data source to the DropDownList of this helper class. This data source will be used for the auto-complete operation. Please refer the following post for more details on how to implement a custom AutoAppendHelper.

I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask.
