    I have an existing dataAdapter that I use with a jqxGrix through with virtualmode set to true. This lets me do filtering and paging. I’d like to reuse this dataAdapter with a jqxComboBox. I would like it to do filtering based on the text entered into the combo box and send that filter to the URL endpoint similar to how the virutual mode for grid works. Does this functionality already exist? I looked over the demos and API for the combo box and it looks like there isn’t really a dynamic mechanism to it.

    I’m looking into remoteAutoComplete more in the meantime, but an example similar to what the jqxGrid documentation shows would be helpful.

    No, you cannot use the same data adapter as jqxGrid and jqxComboBox support different features.

    You can use the remoteAutoComplete.
    Here is an example: http://jsfiddle.net/vnLqmy14/

    Basically, you are sending the search string somewhere and the response from the request should be the data
    I hope this helps!

    As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, the jqxComboBox, part of the jQWidgets library, does not inherently support searching over AJAX. The jqxComboBox is a versatile widget that enables users to select items from a drop-down list or filter options using the built-in filter/search feature. However, this filter/search feature is limited to filtering items available in the combo box locally.

    If you wish to implement searching over AJAX with jqxComboBox, you would need to handle the remote data retrieval and filtering logic yourself. This typically involves using AJAX requests to fetch data from the server based on the user’s search query, and then updating the jqxComboBox’s data source with the filtered results.

    Keep in mind that the library might have introduced new features or updates after my last update. Therefore, I recommend checking the official jQWidgets documentation or community forums for the most up-to-date information regarding jqxComboBox’s capabilities and any recent changes that might include AJAX search support.
