AutoCompleteBoxPropertiesBase.EnableCallbackMode Property

Specifies whether the editor loads data source items from the server on a callback.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Web


public virtual bool EnableCallbackMode { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean false

true if the control loads items on a callback; otherwise, false.


The control’s default behavior is to load all data source items on the client and display them within the list.

Set the EnableCallbackMode property to true to switch the control to callback mode. In this mode, callbacks allow the editor to load data source items from the server on demand. For instance, the control loads items as a user scrolls the list.
Use the ASPxAutoCompleteBoxBase.CallbackPageSize property to specify the number of items to load on each callback.

The control’s ViewState property affects the callback mode. When this property is enabled, the control loads all items on the client regardless of the EnableCallback property value (except in multicolumn mode). Disable the ViewState property when you use callback mode.

        <!-- ... -->
<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ...></asp:SqlDataSource>

Run Demo: Callback Mode
