    I am using auto complete for my search option. When data is entered in auto complete box it is filtered and data is shown but if i want to add another filter to it it is not working.
    I am searching data from different categories based on dropdownlist.I want to add dropdown list data as the other filter.

    Please help.

    Hi Sameer!

    What you should do is to add your extra filters to the filter array on the options object in the parameterMap on the DataSource for the AutoComplete.
      dataSource: {
        transport: {
          read: "Home/Products"
        parameterMap: (options, operation) {
          // get the text of the dropdown list
          var value = $("#dropdown").data("kendoDropDownList").text();
          // filter out whatever the value of the DropDown List is as well as
          // whatever the AutoComplete is already doing. 
          options.filter.filters.push({ field: "ProductName", operator: "neq", value: value, ignoreCase: true });
          return options;
