Mask entry and update DataSource async as the user types

Thread ID:





130938 Jun 12,2017 05:21 PM UTC Jun 13,2017 12:39 PM UTC Xamarin.Forms 1
Tags: SfAutoComplete
Asked On June 12, 2017 05:21 PM UTC


I've been searching for a while and could not find any reference to how can I implement the following features:

1. Mask the entry as the user types. I've looked into the property Value of Syncfusion.SfAutoComplete.XForms.ValueChangedEventArgs on SfAutoComplete.ValueChanged but it turns out this property is read only.

  - Example: 123.456.78|

2. Update the DataSource async as the user types.


    Entry: Ca|
        > Can
        > Camp
        > Car

    Entry: Can|
        > Can
        > Candidate
        > Candy

Thank you in advance,
