    I'm trying to setup auto-completion on a single column in my grid. This is being implemented in a backbone+marionette app. I'm following this example for the implementation

    The view is instantiated in my controller. Nothing happens when I enter text into the input box. Also there aren't any JS errors. 

    I can include more of the code if necessary. Any ideas on how I can get the auto-completion to work.

    Template App.Templates.Search.SearchBoxStuff : 

    <label class="search-label" for="searchBox">Search Grid:</label>
    <input type="search" id="searchBox" class="k-textbox text-input">



    App.SearchStuff.GridView = App.Common.Widgets.Grid.extend({
         * Constructor
        constructor: function (options) {
                    toolbar: [
                        { template: App.Templates.Search.SearchBoxStuff }
                    dataSource: {
                        type: 'odata',
                        pageSize: 100,
                        serverFiltering: true,
                        serverPaging: true,
                        serverSorting: true,
                        sort: {
                            field: 'name',
                            dir: 'asc'
                        schema: {
                            model: {
                                fields: {
                                    id: {type: 'number'},
                                    name: {type: 'string'}
                        transport: {
                            read: {
                                url: '/api/package/search/v1',
                                dataType: 'json',
                                type: 'POST',
                                contentType: 'application/json'
                            parameterMap: _.bind(this._parameterMap, this)
                    height: 700,
                    scrollable: {
                        virtual: true
                    selectable: 'row',
                    sortable: true,
                    pageable: false,
                    columns: [{
                        field: 'name',
                        title: 'Name'
                }, options));
                dataTextField: 'name',
                dataVextField: 'name',
                dataSource: this.dataSource

    Hello Devon,

    I will ask you to send us a repro demo that demonstrates the issue. 

    In general, if you would like to use the AutoComplete widget as an editor, you will need to bind the model field to the editor. Nevertheless, I will be able to chime in more here once the repro demo is accessible.
