RadAutoCompleteTextView: Suggest modes

RadAutoCompleteTextView has three different modes for providing suggestions.

  • Suggest
  • Append
  • Suggest-Append

The suggest mode can be changed with the setSuggestionMode method of the TKAutoCompleteTextView. The default value is SuggestMode.SUGGEST.

this.autocomplete.SuggestMode = SuggestMode.Suggest;

Suggest Mode

In SuggestMode.SUGGEST mode the autocomplete represents the filtered suggestions, matching the typed text, in a pop-up view, which contains list of the suggestions.
