Hi,

Do you offer a control that is ideally TextBox -based that has AutoComplete functionality, much like "out-of-box" TextBox, but with additional support for "contains" logic, in addition to "starting with" logic?

For example, when typing in "p", both "Pear" and "Apple" would be suggested, as both contain "p".

Or optionally, it could be a ComboBox - based control, but allowing free-form entry by user without having to add entered value to Items collection.

Is my current understanding correct that you guys currently don't have this as TextBox-based, according to: http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/winforms/editors/intellisense-autocomplete-in-textbox-like-in-outlook.aspx ? And that your TextBox only shows one suggestion, even though there could be multiple options for autocomplete?

Thanks!

Hello,

No, the RadDropDownList and other controls that support AutoComplete use a Suggest / SuggestAppend / Append logic for the AutoComplete. Have a look at this thread which tries to address this, but it does have some issues.

Hope that helps

It seems all of the your other suites (ASP.NET, Windows 8, Windows Phone, etc.) have a FilterMode property for the AutoCompleteBox. Is there any reason why this still has not been added to the WinForms control?

Hello Jeff,

Thank you for writing.

The property you are looking for is called AutoCompleteMode. More information about it is available here: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/editors-autocompletebox-auto-complete.html.

I hope this helps.
