ComboBox in editable Mode always search with Starting character i.e. By default Search

While using SfComboxBox in editable mode autocomplete feature always use selection  in mode "startswith". Is it possible to set default mode to contains or some other available mode.

Hi Sonu,

We do not provide support for setting different 'SuggestionModes' in SfComboBox. This control is similar to Microsoft’s ComboBox, additionally we have provided Edit Support with AutoComplete option, this will append the filtered items but it does not display the filtered items list and hence the ‘Contains’ mode will not work as expected.

We further suggest you to try using SfTextBoxExt for different filter modes.

Please let us know if you have any queries.
