columns.filterable.cell.suggestionOperator String (default: "startswith")

Specifies the AutoComplete filter option. The possible values are the same as the ones for the AutoComplete filter option - "startswith", "endswith", "contains". The "contains" operator performs a case-insensitive search. To perform a case-sensitive filtering, set a custom filtering function through the dataSource.filter.operator option.

This operator is completely independent from the operator used for the filtering on this column. For more inforamtion, check operator.
