Hi coder123245,

Thank you for posting query to us.

The AutoComplete feature is available only in "ComboBox" or "GridListControl" CellTypes. You can use these cells after hiding the dropdown button, so that the cell looks like TextBox. You can hide the dropdown button using ShowButton property of the style object.

You can see samples of this autocomplete behavior (with and without the hidden button) in our browser sample under this category.

Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance.

Best Regards,
