RadAutoCompleteTextView Suggest Modes

RadAutoCompleteTextView has three different modes for providing suggestions.

The suggest mode can be changed with the suggestionMode property of the RadAutoCompleteTextView. The default value is Suggest.

<au:RadAutoCompleteTextView suggestMode="Append"/>

Suggest Mode

In Suggest mode the autocomplete represents the filtered suggestions, matching the typed text, in a pop-up view, which contains list of the suggestions.

Append Mode

In Append mode the autocomplete shows only the first suggestion matching the typed text, which is represented as direct suffix of the typed text.

Suggest-Append Mode

In SuggestAppend mode the autocomplete combines both upper-mentioned modes. It shows all matching suggestions in a pop-up view and the first of them is appended to the typed text.
