AutoSuggestFilterMode Enumeration

Constants which specify the filtering mode for the automatic completion feature used in the EditorWithCombo embeddable editor.

When the 'Suggest' or 'SuggestAppend' values of the AutoCompleteMode enumeration are used, the dropdown automatically appears as the user types, displaying only the items that meet a certain criteria, and filtering out the rest. Properties which use the AutoSuggestFilterMode enumeration determine that criteria; i.e., whether a 'StartsWith' or 'Contains' condition is applied to the filtering mechanism.

Note: When the 'Contains' setting is used by the EditorWithCombo embeddable editor, the AutoCompleteMode value of 'SuggestAppend' resolves to 'Suggest', i.e, the auto-completion functionality is disabled, since text selection is not applicable when the items being displayed might not have the same run of characters in the beginning of their display text.
