How to change suggestion mode based on search criteria?

To change the Suggestion mode based on search criteria, follow the given steps:

Step 1: Create the AutoComplete sample and include the necessary source files.

Step 2: Create a class Countrylist, and create an instance for list called countryList and then add the countries in the list using the function Add ().

Step 3: Then create an instance for autocomplete. And you must set the AutoCompleteSource to Countrylist ().Country to get the list of countries.

Step 4: By using the object you can change the suggestion display as follows:

public class Countrylist


    List<String> countryList = new List<String>();

    public Countrylist ()








    public List<String> Country




                return countryList;





public class AutoComplete


   public AutoComplete()


      SfAutoComplete countryAutoComplete = new SfAutoComplete();

      countryAutoComplete.AutoCompleteSource = new Countrylist().Country;

      countryAutoComplete.SuggestionMode = SuggestionMode.StartsWith;

      countryAutoComplete.SuggestionMode = SuggestionMode.StartsWithCaseSensitive;

      countryAutoComplete.SuggestionMode = SuggestionMode.EndsWith;

      countryAutoComplete.SuggestionMode = SuggestionMode.EndsWithCaseSensitive;

      countryAutoComplete.SuggestionMode = SuggestionMode.Contains;

      countryAutoComplete.SuggestionMode = SuggestionMode.ContainsWithCaseSensitive;

      countryAutoComplete.SuggestionMode = SuggestionMode.Equals;

      countryAutoComplete.SuggestionMode = SuggestionMode.EqualsWithCaseSensitive;

      this.Content = GetAutoComplete();



private StackLayout GetAutoComplete()


    var mainStack = new StackLayout


       Children ={ countryAutoComplete }


       return mainStack;
