    Hi and thanks in advance.

    I want to use the autocomplete in Append mode only and this is the setup of the control:

    ItemsSource="{Binding References}"                                   
    TextSearchPath="Name" SearchThreshold="3"
    ShowSuggestionView="False" SuggestMode="Append"     
    DisplayMode="Plain" CompletionMode="StartsWith"
    NoResultsMessage="No matching references..."     
    IsClearButtonVisible="True"
    SuggestionItemTextColor="{DynamicResource ColorPrimary}"
    SuggestionItemSelected="VisitorReferenceAutocomplete_OnSuggestionItemSelected"
    FilteredItemsChanged="VisitorReferenceAutocomplete_OnFilteredItemsChanged"
    Style="{StaticResource AutocompleteBaseStyle}"

    After 3 digits a match is found and the FilteredItemsChanged event is triggered correctly but the cursor inside the textbox goes back to the start position and the name inside the textbox is not autocompleted at all. Moreover...what is the behavior of the clear button? Sometimes it works e and sometimes not, in any case how I can understand that the selection is now empty (FilteredItemsChanged  again?).

    The Xamarin.Forms version is the last 3.1.0.697729 and the solution targets only android platform (8.1 Oreo, api 27)

    Do you already have an updated internal build (R3) at least for this control? I need to find a solution in few days otherwise migrate to another solution.

    Thank for your help.

    Hi Elfo,

    The R3 2018 Release came with new AutoComplete control - RadAutoCompleteView. The new control has extended features and improved functionality compared to the current one. Currently, the AppendMode feature is not included in the control's feature set. This feature will be included in the Service Pack - expected few weeks after the R3 2018 Released.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Regards,
    Didi
