The ASPxComboBox editor enables end-users to filter list items dynamically based upon the text typed into the editor's input box on the client side (find-as-you-type filtering).
The following filter modes are available, which is controlled by the IncrementalFilteringMode property:
- None - Filtering is not applied to list items.
- StartsWith - The editor is filtered for list items that begin with the search string.
- Contains - The editor is filtered for list items that contain the search string.
The found search string is highlighted within items for usability purposes.
In this demo, both the 'StartsWith' and 'Contains' filter modes are demonstrated.
Note that in the 'Contains' filter mode, the value typed by an end-user into the edit box is searched for within the editor's item list, based upon the TextFormatString property's defined format.
