    Is there an easy way to get ItemHighlighting in RadDataBoundListBox when binding to FilteredSuggestions property?
    For e.g.  for below code, is it possible to have the TextBlock to have ItemHighlighting when the filter key is matched?
     I would like the RadDataBoundListBox to show ItemHighlighting similar to the one shown by AutoCompleteBox popup.
    Kindly suggest the easiest way to achieve the same, if possible.
    <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot">
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
        <telerikInput:RadAutoCompleteBox PopupDisplayMode="None" x:Name="radAutoCompleteBox" Grid.Row="0"/>
        <telerikPrimitives:RadDataBoundListBox ItemsSource="{Binding ElementName=radAutoCompleteBox, Path=FilteredSuggestions}" Grid.Row="1" x:Name="dataBoundListBox">
                    <TextBlock Text="{Binding}"/>

    Hello Kanishk,

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    Currently, there is not an easy way to get the ItemHighlighting in RadDataBoundListBox. However, we are considering implementation of such a feature for some of our future releases, but I can't promise you a specific data until we research our options.

    If you have any suggestions about this feature or anything else in RadControl for Windows Phone, we free to contact us.

    Yes, please implement that in an upcoming release.

    I would like to mimic the people hub search functionality. Where an autocompletetextbox sits at the top of the page and a databoundlistbox underneath to show the filtered items. I would like to add the highlighting.

    You say there is now "easy way". So is there a hard way then at least? :-)

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Our next release is in less than two weeks and we haven't planned to include this feature in it. We will include it in our next Service Pack, which is expected a month or two after the release. As to the "hard way", you can try to implement this feature on your own and then you can tell us how hard it is ;)

    Kind regards,
