Updating ItemsSource in SfMultiColumnDropDownControl removes the Search Text Entered

I am updating my ItemsSource on key down event. But this is removing the text I have entered. Please let me know how to solve this?

 <syncGrid:SfMultiColumnDropDownControl AllowAutoComplete="True"
                                               AllowIncrementalFiltering="True" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
                                               AllowImmediatePopup="True" AllowNullInput="True"  
                                               Grid.Column="2"  Grid.Row="0"
                                               ItemsSource="{Binding Path=SearchResults}"
                                               Height="30" Width="400"      
                                               Text="{Binding SearchText}"
                <syncGrid:GridTemplateColumn HeaderText="Icon" Width="80">
                            <Image Source="ms-appx:///Assets/Icon_Male.png" Stretch="Uniform" Margin="5" Width="12" />
                <syncGrid:GridTextColumn HeaderText="Id" Width="120" MappingName="ApplicationID" />
                <syncGrid:GridTextColumn HeaderText="Name" Width="250"  MappingName="Name" />
                <Core:EventTriggerBehavior EventName="KeyDown">
                    <Core:InvokeCommandAction Command="{Binding UserSelectionChangedCommand}"
CommandParameter="{Binding SearchText,ElementName=AutocompleteMultiselect}" />

Hi Puneet,

We have tried to replicate the issue by changing the ItemsSource on Key press but we are not able to replicate the reported issue in our end. Could you please check the below sample and let us know more details on your requirement,

Code snippet:

       protected override void OnAttached()


            this.AssociatedObject.PreviewTextInput += AssociatedObject_PreviewTextInput;



        private void AssociatedObject_PreviewTextInput(object sender, System.Windows.Input.TextCompositionEventArgs e)


            var dropDown = sender as SfMultiColumnDropDownControl;

            var dataContext = dropDown.DataContext as MovieRepositoryViewModel;


            dataContext.MoviesLists = new NewItem();



        protected override void OnDetaching()


            this.AssociatedObject.PreviewTextInput -= AssociatedObject_PreviewTextInput;


Please let us know if you have any queries,
