    I have a drop down list and I am using remote data as data source for drop down and I am binding Organisation column as data source. Now my requirements are as below.

     1. I want to show unique values in drop down.

     2. Remove empty items.

     3. I want to add auto complete option in drop down.


    Let me know if this is possible or not. If yes the how can I achieve it?

    Hello Ritesh,

    Let me get straight to your questions:

     1. Showing unique values is not supported out of the box. This could be achieved using a custom solution or by implementing it on the server-side.
     2. You could use the dataSource filter and apply it over the value field.
     3. In order to add an autocomplete option to the DropDownList you should set the filter configuration (see demo).
