Hello, Usman,

In order to set the AutoCompleteSuggest mode to Contains in GridViewComboBoxColumn you should handle the CellEditorInitialized event as follows:

public RadForm1()
{
    InitializeComponent();
    GridViewComboBoxColumn customerColumn = new GridViewComboBoxColumn("Categories");
    customerColumn.DataSource = this.categoriesBindingSource;
    customerColumn.ValueMember = "CategoryID";
    customerColumn.DisplayMember = "CategoryName";
    customerColumn.FieldName = "CategoryID";
    customerColumn.AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.Suggest;
    this.radGridView1.Columns.Add(customerColumn);
    this.radGridView1.CellEditorInitialized += this.RadGridView1_CellEditorInitialized;
}

private void RadGridView1_CellEditorInitialized(object sender, GridViewCellEventArgs e)
{
    RadDropDownListEditor editor = e.ActiveEditor as RadDropDownListEditor;
    if (editor != null)
    {
        RadDropDownListEditorElement el = editor.EditorElement as RadDropDownListEditorElement;
        el.DropDownStyle = Telerik.WinControls.RadDropDownStyle.DropDown;
        el.AutoCompleteMode = AutoCompleteMode.Suggest;
        el.AutoCompleteSuggest.SuggestMode = SuggestMode.Contains;
    }
}
