Overview

The AutoComplete control provides a common AutoComplete text box to easily select values from a predefined list and adds the common AutoComplete paradigm to text boxes. The control is loaded with features to help you customize the behavior, look, and feel in many different ways.

Multiple selection

The input field has been designed to address scenarios such as email address bars. You can select multiple items with token representation or simply divide them with a delimiter.

Token representation

Customizable token representation allows users to remove an item with its close button.

Shows suggestions for entered character

Delimiter

Selected items can be divided with desired characters such as “$” for dollar representation or ‘,’ for traditional comma separation.

Seperating content by symbols


When a character is entered, the control searches for items related to the entered character and filters results, displaying the suggestion in the dropdown list.

Load more

If there are more filtered items than can be viewed, there is no need to worry about populating them. Instead, limit them by using one of the options from the control, and load more if needed by providing a load more button.

Displays Load More option at the list

The autocomplete control applies search logic that suggests items based on the search. This support applies custom typo toleration functionality to the control.

Search based on the logic for mispelled words

Perform filtering when needed

The control starts offering matches as soon as users start typing. This feature can be changed by setting the number of characters required to start matching.

Filter

You can pick from various filtering options such as starts with, contains, and ends with. You can also choose whether to filter with or without case sensitivity.


Suggest, append, or both

The autocomplete control can suggest a list of filtered items in a pop-up or append the rest of the suggested words in the input area. This can also append the matched item and display the list of filtered items suggested in a pop-up at the same time.
