Binding Filter Predicate to ViewModel on SfTextBoxExt

There is a possibility to Binding my "SuggestionPredicate" located in my View model on the Filter property on SfTextBoxExt control?


 <sync:SfTextBoxExt AutoCompleteSource="{Binding Path=Installers}"
                                                SelectedItem="{Binding Installer, Mode=TwoWay}" 
                                                Filter = "{Binding Path=MyFilter}"/>

On View Model:

public SuggestionPredicate<Installer> InstallerSuggestionFilter
                return new SuggestionPredicate<Installer>(
                (s, i) =>
                    return i.Name.ToLower().Contains(s.ToLower()) && i.BusinessName.ToLower().Contains(s.ToLower());

Thanks you.

Hi CSharpino,   
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.   
In SfTextBoxExt, “SuggestionPredicate” cannot be handled in application level but it can be invoked by writing the delegate for this. Therefore, we have prepared a sample with SfTextBoxExt in which we have assigned “SuggestionMode” property as “Custom” and written delegate named “Filter” to handle the filtering of SfTextBoxExt. Please refer the below sample and KB link for further details about Filtering concepts of SfTextBoxExt.   
Sample: TextBoxFilter
