We have a situation when a user is using a filterable DropDownList they input part of the "contains" filter in the search bar "Hamilton," After 3 chars the filter starts to call the method to filter the results. While the user keeps entering data "Hamilton, Tim" the initial return values for the 1st 3 chars returns and they select a value from that list. Then the remaining value(s) return from the "Hamilton, Tim" query and clears out the selected value.

Is there a way to disable this from happening when they select a value and in effect disregard any additional filtering based on the fact that they selected a value

Additionally there are not indicators in the filter/search field showing that a filter operation is currently happening. Can this be enabled/forced?

Hello Tim,

Could you please share a small runnable example that demonstrates the issue you are experiencing? Additional explanation about it and steps to reproduce it will also be much appreciated. Once I get a better understanding of the scenario, I will be happy to assist you.

Regarding the indicators, maybe using the kendo.ui.progress method to display a loading icon will be helpful.

Looking forward to your reply.

Regards,
