  • Aid Your Users with Auto Suggest Functionality

    The Telerik UI for WPF AutoSuggestBox control is a text control for WPF that will automatically load suggestions, similarly to the Google search user experience. When users input text into the search text box, an event will trigger the loading of suggestions into the dropdown menu of the control.

  • High Performance and UI Virtualization

    Just like other controls with items from the Telerik UI for WPF suite, the AutoSuggestBox support UI virtualization, which reduces the memory footprint when loading item suggestions and which significantly boosts the performance of the application.

    The WPF AutoSuggestBox feature enables you to group items by visualizing a group header and organizing the items in the dropdown menu based on the defined group.

  • Keyboard Navigation

    The Telerik UI for WPF AutoSuggestBox is equipped with built-in support for several keyboard navigations, including the Up and Down keys, which enable you to move through the dropdown list of the control, Enter, which triggers a query submit action, and Escape for reverting cached text.

  • Watermark Support

    Define a watermark to be displayed when there is no text entered into the text box of the control. The default setting for the watermark is empty, but you can easily define a text to appear in the search box, e.g. “Type here”. The behavior of the watermark is also open to manipulation—you can hide the watermark upon focus, click or when text is entered.
