    I'd like to use AutoCompleteBox as keyword-tokens entry field and thus it won't need any data source to be bound to. Is it possible to disable auto-suggest feature completely or maybe there's a more suitable control for that? I tried cancelling OnClientRequesting event in javascript handler (see below), but when user types, the control shows "loading" animation which switches off only after the control loses focus. 



    <script type="text/javascript">
                    function txtKeywords_OnClientRequesting(sender, args)

    Hello Andy,

    The AutoCompleteBox is designed to return results based on the text entered by the user and we do not have another control with similar functionality that supports tokens.
    As for disabling the loading icon from showing you can do this with CSS:
    .RadAutoCompleteBox .racLoadingIcon {
        display: none !important;
