Is there a way to fill the SfAutoComplete data source on demand, based on what's being entered? In this specific case, the user enters parts of a name or e-mail-address and then a REST service searches on the server for matching e-mail recipients and returns them to the app. I cannot fetch all in advance, since that can be millions of items.

Hi Olaf Bartelt,

Greetings from Syncfusion.

We have prepared the sample based upon your requirement “Updating the AutoComplete data source based on the text typed using rest service”. In the sample, we have populated the datasource using REST service and the data source will be updated when entering more than six characters. Please have the sample from the below link.

Sample link: http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/forum/141193/ze/AutoComplete_iOS-1966136847 

Please check the sample and let us know if you have any concerns.

Mugundhan S.
