Telerik UI for Windows Phone by Progress

Auto Complete Box-Overview

RadAutoCompleteBox is a text box with extended functionality that provides filtered suggestions as the user types. The control exposes a convenient API to control its behavior and uses optimized filtering algorithms to boost up performance. RadAutoCompleteBox has two Auto Complete Modes: StartsWith and Contains. The StartsWith mode filters the candidate suggestions by comparing the user input with the beginning of the filter key of each candidate suggestion, whereas the Contains filtering mode looks for matches of the input string in the filter key of each candidate suggestion. RadAutoCompleteBox allows you to control the behavior of the popup which displays the available suggestions, as well as to bind a separate list control to the suggestions source and thus do not use a popup. There is an event which is fired each time the end user picks a suggestion which can be used to trigger an additional action upon suggestion selection.
