Getting Change Event to Fire in SyncFusion's SFAutoComplete Control

I asked this question over on Stack Overflow, figured I would also report it here:

I am trying to use the SFAutoComplete control from SyncFusion in a Xamarin iPad app. (only iPad).

I am not able to get any sort of change event to fire.

What I've tried:

If you download SyncFusion and install it, it comes with a "SampleBrowser" app that has samples for all the controls in the suite.

If you open that SampleBrowser in visual studio and open the AutoComplete_Tablet.cs file after line 97, I've added this code:

 countryAutoComplete.ValueChanged += (sender, args) =>
     suggestionModeLabel.Text = "IT WORKED!";

But it never fires.

I've tried to use several different events from the list of events this control has (partial list from screenshot):

enter image description here

None of them seem to fire (I haven't tried ALL of them).

What do I need to do to get one of these events to fire? What am I missing?

Hi Patrick Burrows,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

We have Delegate property to hook the events of SfAutoComplete. We have created a sample for achieving your requirement. Please download the same from the following link


Code Example,
autocomplete.Delegate = new SFAutoCompleteDelegate();

public class SFAutoCompleteDelegate : AutoCompleteDelegate
public override void DidTextChange(SFAutoComplete SFAutoComplete, string value)
// Hook while changing the text in SfAutoComplete
public override void DidSelectionChange(SFAutoComplete SFAutoComplete, string value)
//Hook while changing the suggestion from Suggestion box
