  2. An eventArgs parameter containing the following methods:

    • get_text() - returns the text that is typed in the searchBox, or the text of the selected result item.

    • get_value() -returns the value of the selected result item.

    • get_dataItem() - returns the dataItem that is associated with the selected result item.
