We recently used the SfAutoComplete and noticed that when we use a fixed ObservableCollection we get no issue to correctly display the suggestions. On the other hand if we get some async data, the SfAutoComplete's update seems to not work. The displayed data are not the same as the ones in DataSource.
Other observed point : we have to fill our control in the code-behind because the binding is not working either.
