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.


Append Mode

In SuggestMode.APPEND mode the autocomplete shows only the first suggestion matching the typed text, which is represented as direct suffix of the typed text.


Suggest-Append Mode

In SuggestMode.SUGGEST_APPEND mode the autocomplete combines both upper-mentioned modes. It shows all matching suggestions in a pop-up view and the first of them is appened to the typed text.
