    I'm noticing that if I include a space in my search term it treats that as two search items, when I want it to just treat it as one long string.  Is it possible to have the search function this way?

    For example, let's say I have the following items in my MultiColumnComboBox.

    • Big Dog
    • Big Cat
    • Big Lemur

    If I type 'Big Lemur' in the text box, it doesn't narrow down my search to just Big Lemur.  All 3 are matches.  It appears to be searching on each word in my search phrase.  I think I understand the difference between the different AutoCompleteMode settings, but none of them treat a multi-word search term as just one search value.

    Hello Emilio,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Indeed, the current implementation does not support handling spaces. Thus, I have logged this as a feature request in our system. You can track its state in our Feedback Portal: Add support for spaces between strings when searching.

    Let me know in case I can be of further assistance.

    Have a nice weekend, Emilio.

    I edit in the vi editor. I want to search in the text for a specific phrase. I have tried this search string, but it's not working
    How do I search for this string properly? Note that there may be more than one space between the parts

    Hi Lucy013,

    For the time being, the control does not support threatening multiple strings with spaces between them as a single one. Can you please clarify whether you referred to this particular feature of RadMultiColumnComboBox or I am missing something?
