    In order to reduce server traffic I want to let a 3 character search term fetch a set of N items (using the contains operator) and then let the component take over for the longer search terms.  When the 3 character term is changed a new set of N items will have to be fetched.

    Is there a easy way to implement this using just the configuration options of datasource and or autocomplete ?

    Hello Avinesh,

    The Autocomplete widget now supports virtualization, which is a perfect addition to the server filtering. Both features combined should give you excellent performance with minimum server overhead, so workarounds as the one mentioned here would not be necessary.
