Currently it is not possible to initialize the tokens of the autocomplete so the UI shows already selected tokens. This is necessary to use the control for a CREATE/EDIT scenario. Example: - Create an event (party) and select all the friends from the autocompelte (another issue is that already selected tokens cannot be removed from the suggestion list) - Save the event - Edit the event => now you would need to see the already selected friends so you can add and remove some
Currently SuggestionView is displayed when the text is updated and the control is focused. There are cases when users need to explicitly set the Text of the control and open the view with the filtered items.
I have a page where many AutoComplete controls are used. Selecting a value in one must select a value in another. We know that this value is selected by setting Text property (through object binding), but by doing this, suggestion view shows up. I test many tweaks with ShowSuggestionView property, SuggestMode, or whatever, and there is no proper way to achieve the behavior I want. Regards
Users need to restrict suggestion of already selected tokens. In other words when users create a token, that particular item should not be suggested when typing new tokens anymore.
Currently users are not aware when a token gets selected/deselected.
Similar to the UWP AutoCompleteBox functionality - http://docs.telerik.com/windows-universal/controls/radautocompletebox/features/autocompletebox-webservice-support
