RadAutoCompleteTextView has two modes for filtering suggestions.
StartsWith mode the autocomplete shows only suggestions that start with the typed phrase.
Contains mode the autocomplete shows the suggestions that contain the typed phrase, but not necessarily in the beginning.
The completion mode
Contains is not intended to work with the
SuggestAppend suggest modes.
Since these suggest modes append the rest of the suggestion to the typed text, the combination between them and
Contains won't be helpful but rather confusing.
