    From the documentation about autocomplete 
    Filter("contains") //Define the type of the filter, which autocomplete will use.

    I noticed that the Filter method has some hard-coded values.What are the other filter types?
    if other controls also have this kind of hard-coded values,where can i find them?also,they are case-sensitive?

    Hi Daniel,

    The AutoComplete widget has two possible filters - "startswith" and "contains". They are both covered in the Documentation ("startswith" is the default value). 

    Usually when a method receives a hard-coded value as a parameter, it is described in the documentation e.g. DataSource filter method.

    All the best,
