Support accent insensitive search on combobox

Hi !

So I work with Kendo UI for JQuery and Kendo UI for ASP.NET MVC and recently I had to use your combobox and found that the search was not accent insensitive and that there were no options to make it so. I think it would be a wonderful feature to have. My dataSource contains a lot of names that could potentially have accents and it would be really great to includes thoses names when I filter without accent.


Thank you !

Hello Olivier,


Thank you for writing to us.

The DataSource widget supports accent filtering for languages like Turkish and Spanish. You can check the following section for more info:

As for supporting multiple accent languages, I am afraid this is not currently supported and you can cast your Vote on these items as well:

I hope this info will help. What do you think? Can you let me know if I can assist with something else?
