UI for ASP.NET AJAX
Enable AutoComplete to allow your users to get suggestions on the items they are looking for. Set a maximum result or a minimum characters typed count to enhance the search experience.
RadSearchBox comes with two built in filters: “Contains” and “StartsWith.” Contextual search within specific categories is also available.
No matter what database you need to use in your project, you can easily bind it to Telerik ASP.NET Search Box control. Bind it either on the server to any ASP.NET data source control (AccessDataSource, SqlDataSource, LinqDataSource, EntityDataSource, ObjectDataSource, XmlDataSource, OpenAccessDataSource), or on the client to ASP.NET Web Services, WCF, ADO.NET, OData services and Page Methods.
The Search Context functionality in Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX improves the performance and usability when searching in large data sets by providing context for the search operation. The search context is represented as a simple drop-down giving a choice to select a context item.
An ItemSelect client-side event is triggered when an item from the search context dropdown is selected. It also contains information about the selected item.
To customize our SearchBox control for ASP.NET AJAX, all you need to do is set a single property and instantly apply one of the 20 ready-to-use built-in themes, including an innovative mobile skin. Create a consistent look for your apps and save design and front-end development time. You can easily customize our existing skins or create your own with our Visual Style Builder.
