Setting Selected Values


My issue relates to the SfAutoComplete multi selection. I am trying to set the selected token values based on a list of items. I have tried to set these values using SfAutoComplete.SelectedValue but this did not work.

For example 
 List<object> list1
SfAutoComplete.DataSource = list1

List<object> list2 (I would like to be able to take the items from list2 and set the token values for the auto complete)

SfAutoComplete.SelectedValue = list2 (this is what I have attempted).

Is there any way of doing this?

Thank you

Hi Blake, 
Thank you for using Syncfusion Support. 
Query: ”Setting Selected Values ” 
We have analyzed the reported requirement and currently SelectedItem can be used for setting the selected values in the AutoComplete TextBox. We have created a sample based on your given code snippet. Please have a sample from the following link. 
In our sample we have one list(Colors) that set into the DataSource and used another List(SelectionObject) that is set to the SelectedItem. Now the SelectedItem will display the  
SelectionObject list. 
Please let us know if you have any other concern.

Hi Paul

Thanks for getting back to me and apologies for the late response. The sample that you have provided is in Xamarin Forms. I am looking for a solution in Xamarin Android. Will it be possible to provide a sample using Xamarin Android?
