It's also possible configure multicolumns in autocomplete control, Like ComboBox in Asp.Net Classic ?

Thank's in advance.

Hi Luca,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

We have analyzed your requirement to use ejAutoComplete control in a column upon editing. Using EditTemplate property of the grid, we can achieve your requirement.

Please refer the below Online Sample Link for more information on EditTemplate.

Online Sample Link: http://asp.syncfusion.com/demos/web/grid/edittemplate.aspx

In the above sample, we have converted the CustomerID column to AutoComplete Control upon editing using the EditTemplate property of the grid.

Please refer the below online documentation link for more information on the EditTemplate property.

Documentation Link: http://help.syncfusion.com/ug/aspnet/index.html#!Documents/edittemplate.htm

Query: It's also possible configure multicolumns in autocomplete control, Like ComboBox in Asp.Net Classic ?

Could you please tell us if your requirement is to display multiple columns in the AutoComplete popup dialog similar to that of Multi-DropDownCombobox in ASP.NET Classic? Or if you are expecting to select multiple values from the popup dialog. Please share more and clear information on your requirement which will be helpful for us to assist you accordingly.

Please get back to us if you need any further assistance.

Hi Ragavee,

I see online example and it's ok for me project.

Sorry for my ambiguous question: My requirement is to display multiple columns in the AutoComplete popup dialog similar to that of Multi-DropDownCombobox in ASP.NET.
I need to show the cell with autocomplete the customer id, customer name, address and other specific information.

Thanks in advance for your help.
