Customize the suggestion dropdown.

Hi Team,

I am trying to use SfTextBoxExt which help in filtering options dynamically and capture text entered.
I was able to  modify items templates using AutoCompleteItemTemplate to show 2/3 columns when the drop down is open but I would like to know if  there is a way I will be able to get a Header on the column for the data in the item template. I would like to use properties like MinimumPrefixCharacters/SuggestionMode etc.

It would be great if I can get a sample to achieve headers for the columns in the drop down suggestions.

Hi Srikanth,

Greetings from Syncfusion. 

Query 1: Header on the column for the data in the item template
Currently we don’t have a header support for the Suggestion box in SfAutoComplete. 
Query 2: Using properties like MinimumPrefixCharacters/SuggestionMode in AutoComplete. 
We have checked your requirement with SfAutoComplete. We have prepared the simple sample for your reference. Please have a below code example 
Code snippet: 
<editors:SfTextBoxExt HorizontalAlignment="Center"  
                                     AutoCompleteSource="{Binding Employees}" > 
We have prepared the sample which will be available for downloading in below
