I would like to use an AutoCompleteBox to display records as the user enters the information however I need to display alternate text if the record is terminated.  There is the potential that a client name will be listed twice and I need some way of displaying them differently in the AutoCompleteBox.

Normal record will display as such:

Client Name - City, State

What I need for a terminated Client to look like the following

Client Name - City, State (Terminated Date)

I am not sure of how to do this and am looking for some assistance.  Is there away to add an IF...Then statement to my DropDownItemTemplate?

Thanks

Hello Kurt,

Such functionality could be achieved in a WebService binding scenario, where you could assign a custom attributes to the items, from the datasource. Thus, at the OnClientEntryAdding client-side event, you could set the custom text - Client Name - City, State. In addition, in the same event, you could check if there is already another item with the same text and determine weather to set the Client Name - City, State (Terminated Date) text template.
Bellow you could find a sample project, which I had created for you, demonstrating a possible implementation.
