    I have a simple question related to raddropdownlist. I placed raddropdownlist on a form and make its AutoCompleteMode property to SuggestAppend. When i start typing it successfully search. For example i have bonded a value like 'Iam going to market'. When i start typing Iam from the very first character, it successfully searched the value. But when i write 'going' it does not search. It actually try to search from the first word, while i need it should search from anywhere, like we use like statement in query by using '%' to find anywhere in the sentence or value.

    Hope my question will be understandable. Please anyone answer as soon as possible. I shall be very thankful.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Meekai,

    You can change the suggest mode using the following property of the AutoCompleteSuggest object:
    radDropDownList1.DropDownListElement.AutoCompleteSuggest.SuggestMode = Telerik.WinControls.UI.SuggestMode.Contains;

    I hope that you find this information useful. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
