    query: new ej.data.Query().select(['ContactName']).take(6),
    //map the appropriate columns to fields property
    fields: { value: 'ContactName'},
    //set the placeholder to DropDownList input
   placeholder: "Select a name",
    // sort the resulted items
    sortOrder: 'Ascending',
    // set true to allowFiltering for enable filtering supports
    allowFiltering: true,
    // bind the filtering event handler
    filtering: (e) => {
        // set limit as 4 to search result
        let query = new ej.data.Query().select(['ContactName']).take(6);
        query = (e.text !== '') ? query.where('ContactName', 'startswith', e.text, true) : query;
        e.updateData(data, query);
    }
});
