    I was wondering if this is implemented in WPF version also?


    I'm trying to use a RadComboBox (window) in the application I'm developing.
    As far a as I can see the autocomplete mode uses the entered text to filter those items starting with this text. I would like to go beyond this functionality by filtering those items which contains the entered text, not only at the begining but also in any place.

    As an example, if I have a combobox containing cities and I write "lon" it should filter, not only "london" city but also "barcelona" (among others cities matching the filter).

    Hi Srdjan,

    We don't have an Autocomplete modes, but instead of that we have TextSearchModes and one of the modes is Contains. So you can combine it with IsFilteringEnabled="True" OpenDropDownOnFocus="True" and it seems that you can achieve the desired property. You can check it out in the Configurator example of RadComboBox here in our examples (the corresponding Silverlight example you can find here).
    Also we are currently developing an RadAutoCompleteBox control which will be available in Q3 2012 release.
    Hope this will help.
