Multiple values to "dataTextField" property for kendoAutoComplete widget
I would like to assign multiple values to "dataTextField" property as a part of kendoAutoComplete widget initialization process. This will enable to search and filter values across multiple data fields.

Unfortunately, there is no option to combine these fields into one, they must be separate.
I don't know of other HTML AutoComplete widgets which support such functionality, 
but you can be the first (this option is a strong point, on my opinion).

Thanks for the suggestion.

Since you'll be searching/filtering through the data from several fields, is there an option to combine these fields into one and then assign it to the autocomplete? This can happen either at data source level, or with your custom implementation which does that before feeding the widget with data. 

Also do you know of other html autocomplete widget which supports such functionality?
