AutoCompleteMode.Append with SuggestionMode.Contains does not work


I'm trying to use autoComplete component (17.1451.0.43 version) with :

- DataSource binding to an observableCollection of object containing a string property "Name"
- DisplayMemberPath to "Name" to consider this object property
- AutoCompleteMode to "Append"
- SuggestionMode to "Contains"

I noticed that :
- The suggestion does not work (no suggestion while data source contains several objects names containing the filter string).
- If i change AutoCompleteMode to "Suggest" or "SuggestAppend", suggestions appear (SuggestAppend gives suggestion but no append).
- If i change SuggestionMode to "StartsWith" and keep AutoComlpeteMode to "Append", it works

Is it a known issue ?
Could you give me a workaround ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Stephane, 
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
We have analyzed your query and we would like to inform you that this is our default behavior. Append and SuggestAppend Mode works only in StartsWith Mode.  

Please let us know if you have any other queries.
