If the SfAutoComplete is set to an IQueryable, does it retrieve all records before filtering or does it apply the filter to the IQueryable?

Thanks for the reply.  I had assumed SfAutoComplete would compose a new query when the DataSource was set to an IQueryable. I am glad I asked.

I use Realm as my backend, which returns an IQueryable (supports live updates) when I query for a RealmObject (e.g db.All<Tag>() Realm Collection).   I would like SfAutoComplete to filter the results by using the IQueryable instead of retrieve all records and then filtering.

Hi Jeremy,

Thank you for the update.

Currently we do not have support for "fAutoComplete to filter the results by using the IQueryable". We have logged the feature request for the same. The feature will be available in any of our upcoming releases.
