    I am looking to purchase this control to achieve a task in our xamarin project. Not sure this control has all features that we are expecting.

    1 - Custom UI for Text Field, result display cells or list.

    2 - Re-populating list from data provided after search.

    3 - Callbacks on each character type to make web service calls.

    4 - Controlling Text Field focus intentionally.

    Can anyone confirm?

    Hello,

    Straight to your questions:

    1. You could customize the result items using the SuggestionItemsTemplate property which is described in details here: AutoComplete: SuggestionItem Template. . Additionally, if you're using Tokens DisplayMode, you could customize the Tokens look through TokenStyle and SelectedTokenStyle properties. 

    2. Could you elaborate more on the exact scenario here?

    3.  This is logged in our Feedback Portal as a feature request, you could vote for it and track its progress here: AutoComplete: Remote Search

    4.  You could call autocomplete.Focus() to set the focus into the AutoComplete TextField.

    I'm looking forward to your reply.

    Thanks for reply. Here are the reply on the points.

    1. Great.

    2. I meant by reloading the list after getting search result from web service. Does this work like table view reload?

    3. If we will not get callbacks of the character type, then on what trigger we will do API calls to load data?

    4. That will work.

    Hello,

    2. You could reload the ItemsSource of the AutoComplete, but this will also clear the selected items.

    3.  RadAutoComplete does not provide specific API suitable for making calls to a web service.  You could initially load the data from the service and assign it to its ItemsSource property.

    Let me know if I can assist with anything else.
