Grid MENU filter filtersearchbegin


I'm missing some kind of event when you type to search in filter of MENU type, filtersearchbegin does not fire as it fires in Excel as you type, so I can't add additional params for search. I'm assuming that this is an issue. If not, how do I pass additional param when searching (I'm doing it on filtersearchbegin with Excel type)

No event was fired when I types "t" in search

Here's the demo I used to see that nothing fires in ActionBegin as you type

Hi Domantos, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion. 

We have validated your query and the provided information. We suggest you to use the below way to achieve your requirement. In the below sample, we have applied additional parameter for autoComplete component in actionComplete event with requestType as filterafteropen using query property of autoComplete. 

Please refer the below code example and sample for more information. 

<ejs-grid [dataSource]='data' allowFiltering=true [filterSettings]='filter' (actionComplete)='actionComplete($event)' height='273px'> 
  <e-column field='ProductName' headerText='ProductName' width=120></e-column> 
  . . . . . . 

export class DataBindingComponent implements OnInit { 
    ngOnInit(): void { 
    this.filter = { type: 'Menu' }; 
  actionComplete(e) { 
    if (e.columnName == "ProductName" && e.requestType === 'filterafteropen') { 
      e.filterModel.dlgObj.element.querySelector('.e-autocomplete').ej2_instances[0].query = new Query().addParams('ej2autocomplete', 'true');
