Hi Rarmlith,   
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.   
We were also able to reproduce the mentioned issue. Instead of using the tag helper for Autocomplete MultiColumnSettings, you have to define the MultiColumnSettings object using the CSHTML Razor syntax and set it to multi-column-settings property. Right now, please use this workaround solution for using the multicolumn option in the Autocomplete.   
        @{ Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models.MultiColumnSettings setting = newSyncfusion.JavaScript.Models.MultiColumnSettings();   
            setting.Enable = true;   
            setting.StringFormat = "({0} {1})";   
            Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models.Columns cols = newSyncfusion.JavaScript.Models.Columns();   
            cols.Field = "CountryName";   
            cols.FilterType = FilterOperatorType.Contains; // use this filter type in columns   
            cols.Type = ColumnType.String;   
            cols.HeaderText = "Name";   
            Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models.Columns cols1 = newSyncfusion.JavaScript.Models.Columns();   
            cols1.Field = "CountryId";                // use this filter type in columns   
            cols1.FilterType = FilterOperatorType.Contains;   
            cols1.Type = ColumnType.String;   
            cols1.HeaderText = "ID";   
                colslist = new List<Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models.Columns>   
            setting.Columns = colslist;   
<ej-autocomplete id="search2" filter-type="Contains" highlight-search="true" show-rounded-corner="true" enable-auto-fill="true" datasource="(System.Collections.IEnumerable)ViewBag.datasource"enable-distinct="true" show-popup-button="true" watermark-text="enter country name" multi-column-settings="@setting"width="400" show-reset-icon="true" visible="true" >   
            <e-autocomplete-fields key="CountryId" text="CountryName" />   
We have provided a simple sample below for your convenience. 
Please let us know if you have any further queries.
